Optibodies - Nordic BioSite


Optimised and well tested antibodies for Immunohistochemistry


Optibodies(TM) from Nordic Biosite - Optimal Antibodies for Optimal Immunohistochemistry

 

Optibodies are a range of carefully tested, top quality antibodies for Immunohistochemistry.

Immunohistochemistry (IHC) frequently necessitates the use of antibodies and techniques tailored to each individual project or diagnostic application. This means, there is no one specific protocol for IHC that can be used regularly.

 

From a clinical perspective, antibodies must be specific with high affinity towards their epitopes, whilst remaining flexible to use and offering good LOT consistency. Optibody antibodies are carefully optimised and fine-tuned for both research and clinical IHC.

 

Optibodies are optimised using NordiQC recommended control tissues and criteria.

Antibody optimisation for IHC involves a range of tests in order to find an antibodies optimal staining conditions. Each antigen has a preferred method of antigen retrieval such as Heat Induced Epitope Retrieval (HIER) using acidic Citrate or TRIS-EDTA base buffers, as well as an enzymatic retrieval process. However the majority of antigens need an alkaline pre-treatment method for optimal staining. Additnionally each antibody has an optimal concentration when used, depending on the affinity of paratope and epitope as well as the expression level of the antigen. Antibodies optimised with tissues that express high levels of antigen expression may prove inadequate when staining tissues with low antigen expression. For this reason it is necessary to optimise each antibody for a variety of tissue types.

 

This is the basis of Optibodies with each antibody optimised for each use.
