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 the problem by using M.O.M. Kits.
- Significantly reduce background staining in mouse tissues
- See clear, crisp staining of the antigens of interest
- Avoid tedious calculations and primary antibody pre-binding steps
- Choose between avidin/biotin technology (M.O.M. Elite® ABC kit, Fluorescein kit, or Basic kit) or polymer technology (paired with our ready-to-use, non-biotin ImmPRESS™ HRP micropolymer reagent.
All M.O.M. Kits contain our proprietary M.O.M. Mouse Ig Blocking Reagent.

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.
