Vector Laboratories announced a new addition to the Vector M.O.M. (Mouse-on-Mouse) family of detection reagents. This latest new product is the Vector M.O.M ImmPRESS Peroxidase Polymer Kit. It allows the use of mouse primary antibodies on mouse tissue without background staining, by using a sensitive, one-step, non-biotin M.O.M. ImmPRESS Polymer Reagent.
Vector Laboratories offers the ImmPRESS Polymer Detection reagents with alkaline phosphatase as the enzyme detection system. Available as Anti-Mouse and Anti-Rabbit ImmPRESS-AP Alkaline Phosphatase Polymer Reagents, these products are designed to detect primary antibodies made in rabbit and mouse in immunohistochemical staining.
ImmPRESS polymerized reporter enzyme staining system is based on a new method of polymerizing enzymes and attaching these polymers to antibodies. The approach employed to form enzyme micro-polymers avoids the inherent shortcomings of using macromolecules as a backbone.
