NEWS: Optibodies™ - 2020 Update



The Best Performing Optibodies

 

Read about our top new CD117 as well as our CK-pan and EpCAM Optibodies™ that both performed very well in the external quality assessments by NordiQC. Plus protocols are now available for all three of these Optibodies on the Ventana BenchMark Ultra and the Dako Omnis.

 

 

CK-pan, clone BS5 (Cat No BSH-7124)

BS5 clone stains both low and high molecular weight cytokeratins as expected from an optimal antibody. The main advantage of this Optibody is the monoclonality, which provides for robust performance independent of the tissue and across many different protocols. The last evaluation from NordiQC resulted in the highest score in the concentrated antibodies category.

EpCAM clone BS14 (Cat No BSH-7402)

The advantage of the BS14 clone is its robustness and optimal performance on multiple IHC platforms, using standard high pH HIER buffer. The BS14 clone is a good alternative with a more flexible dilution range.

The BRS24 clone is one of the newest OptibodiesTM and especially the specificity is a characteristic of the clone. If you have an issue with false positive tissues this clone could be an option.
