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:
