High-sensitivity avidin-biotin kits with alkaline phosphatase-based detection

VECTASTAIN® ABC-AP (alkaline phosphatase) Kits provide high sensitivity avidin-biotin based detection in immunohistochemistry (IHC), immunocytochemistry (ICC), protein and nucleic acid blot, in situ hybridization (ISH), and enzyme immunoassay (ELISA) detection.

  • Alkaline phosphatase enzyme detection system
  • Avidin/biotin technology
  • High sensitivity/low background
  • Low cost
  • Can be used as a second label in multiple antigen labeling applications

Use the VECTASTAIN® ABC-AP Kits for tissues with high endogenous peroxidase activity. The system also offers additional substrate color choices.

  • To detect a biotinylated target, use the VECTASTAIN® ABC Standard Kit, plus an appropriate substrate
  • To detect an unlabeled primary antibody or lectin, use a biotinylated secondary antibody (binds the primary antibody species or lectin you have chosen), VECTASTAIN® ABC reagent, and appropriate substrate (for example, to detect a rabbit primary antibody, choose the VECTASTAIN® ABC Kit, Rabbit IgG).
