Highlighted Antibody - CD117 Clone BSR24



CD117 is important in the classification of mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract, with CD117 antibody used for the classification of GIST tumors and germinal cell tumors: Seminoma/dysgerminoma are CD117 positive in the majority of cases, while embryonal carcinoma is CD117 negative in the majority of cases and with a weaker reaction.

 

Optimisation of CD117 staining is vital to avoid both false positives and false negatives and the easy optimisation of our CD117 makes a major difference in ensuring the staining is correct.

 

 

KEY ADVANTAGES OF CLONE BSR24 (CD117 ANTIBODY):

 

• Excellent signal to noise ratio.

 

• Less prone to staining desmoid tumours, which should be negative because BSR24 does not stain smooth muscle cells.

 

• This antibody truly provides optimal staining and as with all our antibodies we provide a 100% guarantee, so trying it really is risk free.
