We are currently using anti-Desmin antibody (monoclonal, 2B5) M01948-3 for mouse tissue, and we are satisfied with the Flow Cytometry results. The species of reactivity given in the datasheet says human, mouse, rat. Is it likely that the antibody can work on feline tissues as well?

C. Zhao

Asked: 2017-12-07


The anti-Desmin antibody (monoclonal, 2B5) (M01948-3) has not been tested for cross reactivity specifically with feline tissues, but there is a good chance of cross reactivity. We have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in feline you can get your next antibody for free. Please contact me if I can help you with anything.
