The ImmunoStar alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone antiserum was quality control tested using standard immunohistochemical methods. The antiserum demonstrates strongly positive labeling of rat pituitary using biotin/avidin-HRP techniques.

Recommended primary dilutions are 1/100-1/200 in PBS/0.3% Triton X-100 - FITC Technique and 1/4000-1/6000 in PBS/0.3% Triton X-100 - Bn/Av-HRP Technique. Staining is completely eliminated by pretreatment of the diluted antibody with 100 ug/mL of alpha-MSH.
