Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is a method of detecting the presence of specific proteins in cells of a tissue section by exploiting the principle of antibodies binding specifically to antigens in biological tissues. IHC is widely used in the diagnosis of abnormal cells and basic research to understand the distribution and localization of biomarkers and differentially expressed proteins in different parts of a biological tissue.
This product is based on a novel LSAB (labeled streptavidin-biotin) method. In this new method a single primary antibody is subsequently associated with multiple biotin molecules. Poly-HRP Streptavidin provides multiple active biomolecules on each polymer chain which increase the biotin binding capacity and amplify the peroxidase enzyme signal.
