First thank you all for your helpful responses! Now another problem

Oh, no! I discovered that this only "orange-red(!)"-conjugated
monoclonal antiMouseIgG is one with R-Phycoerythrin that is mainly used in
Flow Cytometry not in Immunohistochemistry, emissing a peak at 575nm
- the specific red filter blocks if lower than 580-590nm!
I suppose I can see *both*, FITC *and* R-PE, with a 520nm filter but the
pictures should be separated e.g. for b&w photos. Additionally
recommended dilution is 1:20 - 1:40 :-(
Now we try to go for a polyklonal intermediate antibody from rabbit
that is adsorbed to other IgGs and shows "minimal cross reactions"
to goat antibodies (DAKO 0.1"%" cross reactions in a scale of 0.1
(not detectable) to 10% (severe cross reactions)).
Steps are now:
1. Mouse monoclonal IgG1
2. goat anti (H+L) mouse, conjugated
this is a normal indirect labelling... second labelling as follows:
3. Mouse monoclonal IgG2b
4. rabbit anti IgG2b mouse, unlabeled
5. goat anti (H+L) rabbit, conjugated
The rule is: if possible take second antibodies from one species
:-( this is not possible here.
Are there any objections to this system??
