HI---alot of times ab suppliers are not conducting the research. If they 
know of a reference that used the antibody for histo then they will ref 
the paper + say the ab is okay.  I would purchase or if possible, get an 
aliquot and test it for histo with standard checkerboard analysis.  I 
have used human anti-TNF with cryo-sections and have reasonable results. 
these abs were from genzyme and R&D
