Vector Laboratories M.O.M.™ Immunodetection systems are specifically designed to localize mouse primary antibodies on mouse tissue while avoiding background staining. These M.O.M.™ Kits contain our proprietary M.O.M.™ Mouse Ig Blocking Reagent. M.O.M.™ Kits are available based on either avidin-biotin technology (M.O.M.™ Elite® ABC Kit, Fluorescein Kit, or Basic Kit) or polymer technology (M.O.M.™ ImmPRESS™ HRP Polymer Kit). Use the M.O.M.™ Immunodetection systems to introduce two or more different labels using a multiple antigen labeling protocol. You can detect several mouse primary antibodies on the same tissue section, regardless of the species of the tissue. Excellent staining results for a once difficult application have now become routine with the Vector M.O.M.™ System.
Sections of mouse kidney stained with mouse antibody against smooth muscle actin using VECTASTAIN® ABC-AP Kit and Vector® Blue substrate. Using standard biotinylated anti-mouse antibody and normal blocking serum, confusing background is seen (left). With the Vector® M.O.M.™ Basic Kit, clean background and specific staining is achieved (right).
Mouse intestine stained with standard anti-mouse IgG polymer system (left) and Vector® M.O.M.™ ImmPRESS™ HRP Polymer Kit (right). Brown signal indicates IgG background staining. (Both: No primary antibody, Vector® DAB stain, hematoxylin counterstain.)
