Multiple Antigen Labeling Guide
A valuable resource for those considering localizing two or more antigens in the same tissue section. Protocols for chromogenic as well as fluorescent detection are accompanied by schematic illustrations of the procedures. A chart of all pair-wise combinations of substrates is included along with photographic examples. Practical tips regarding order of substrates, blocking, and proper controls are also provided.
Immunofluorescence Resource Guide
Producing immunofluorescence (IF) staining results with high specificity and sensitivity begins with choosing the best reagents. This guide will help you:
- Learn about the IF workflow and how to optimize each step
- Quickly identify and choose the most appropriate fluorescent secondary conjugates
- Select the best anti-fade medium to preserve your fluorescence signal for imaging and archiving
Molecular Biology Guide
Ideal for those new to the field or those seeking straightforward, cost effective approaches in optimal labeling and detection of DNA/RNA probes.
Instructive diagrams showing labeling methodologies are accompanied by photographic examples submitted by independent investigators that highlights their recent research. Practical insight is offered into choice of labeling method based on probe size, type, application and tag. Subsequent detection of the labeled probes using chromogenic or fluorescent visualization is described for various applications including microarrays, blotting and in situ hybridization. Step-by-step protocols and referenced publications make this a valuable and contemporary reference tool.
Enzyme Substrates Brochure
In addition to photomicrographs which help the user visualize the color that is generally produced by each substrate, this brochure contains information on substrate properties especially useful for those who wish to multiplex (or introduce multiple labels in the same tissue section): table of substrate properties, a schematic of relative senstitivities of substrate formulations, and a table of pairwise substrate compatibility.
Troubleshooting Guide for ABC Systems

Troubleshooting Guide for Polymer Kits
A quick reference guide that outlines the systematic controls to help identify background sources in an immunohistochemistry protocol polymer detection systems. Also troubleshoot issues of weak or no staining. Laminated.
Troubleshooting Mouse Primaries on Mouse Tissue
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.
Lectins and Glycobiology Guide
This brochure contains a useful table of lectin properties summarizing biophysical information as well as sugar binding specificities and special applications for lectins available from Vector Labs. Also includes a complete product listing of all lectins, lectin conjugates and associated reagents.
