Mouse on Mouse (M.O.M.) Kits
For detecting anti-mouse antibodies in mouse tissues
An anti-mouse detection antibody generally cannot distiguish between a primary antibody produced in mouse and the endogenous mouse immunoglobulins present in mouse tissue. Such applications often result in high background staining, which obscures specific staining. Eliminate this problem by using M.O.M. Kits. In addition to the inclusion of our proprietary M.O.M. Mouse Ig Blocking Reagent, these kits offer;
- A significant reducuction in background staining in mouse tissues
- Clear, crisp staining of the antigens of interest
- The avoidance of tedious calculations and primary antibody pre-binding steps
Mouse on Mouse (M.O.M.) Kit options include:
Kits utilizing Avidin / Biotin technology
Kits utilizing polymer technology
Reagents for use with our M.O.M. Kits

This guide for troubleshooting mouse primary antibodies on mouse tissue describes some common difficulties encountered in this procedure and details strategies for customizing the M.O.M. Kits to address them.
