The MenaPath range of optimised Antibody diluents consists of Universal Antibody Diluent (green), Sensitivity Enhancing Antibody Diluent A (blue), Sensitivity Enhancing Antibody Diluent B (yellow) and Sensitivity Enhancing Antibody Diluent C (red). These colour coded diluents provide improved antibody titres and are extremely stable for long-term storage. Comparison with PBS-based and Tris-based diluents have shown in the majority of cases a 2 to 4 times improvement in titres. Greater dilution of primary antibodies provides higher specificity, thus potentially eliminating false positives.
- Increase titres
- Reduce background staining
- Protease and IgG free
- Ready to use
Universal Antibody Diluent (MP-900)
A pH 7.3 diluent with protein carrier and preservative. This is an excellent universal diluent.
Sensitivity Enhancing Diluent A (MP-901)
This is a pH 7.9 diluent which also uses Assure Technology with pH indicator. As in the previous diluent, a change in pH results in a colour change. A change in diluent colour from pale blue to green or yellow indicates that optimal staining may be compromised.
Sensitivity Enhancing Diluent B (MP-902)
Sensitivity Enhacing Diluent B is specifically formulated to enhance certain types of antibodies and may increase titres up to 2-4 times.
Sensitivity Enhancing Diluent C (MP-904)
Formulated at pH 6.0, Sensitivity Enhancing Diluent C is specially designed to work with Tris-based antibodies, rinsing buffers and/or detection systems that use alkaline phosphatase.
Non Specific Staining Reducing Antibody Diluent (MP-905)
This antibody diluent is specially formulated to reduce the occurrence of nonspecific background with antibodies used in IHC techniques: (e.g. Synaptophysin, PLAP, Kappa, and Lambda). There are added potent background-reducing agents to dramatically reduce any unwanted background staining.
