Highlighted Antibody - Pan Cytokeratin (Cytokeratin Pan) Clone BS5



Pan Cytokeratin: Cytokeratins are expressed in wide variety of epithelial tissues and are of great importance for carcinoma diagnostic. The challenge is to stain all the 20 different cytokeratins optimally. Clone BS5 meets this challenge as one of the best clones available.

 

 

KEY ADVANTAGES OF CLONE BS5 (PAN CYTOKERATIN ANTIBODY):

 

• Clone BS5 stains both low and high molecular weight cytokeratins as expected with an optimal antibody.

 

• Clone BS5 is a single monoclonal and not a cocktail, so it provides robust performance independent of the tissue and between different protocols.

 

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