HiQ Pro-Block is a highly effective blocking reagent capable of reducing non-specific background staining associated with immunodetection techniques such as immunocytochemistry, ELISA, and Western blotting. Antibodies tend to bind non-specifically to membranes and tissues. To minimize this nonspecificbinding, a blocking buffer is used to enhance signal-to noise ratio.
HiQ Pro-Block shows no cross-reactivity and it blocks more effectively than serum albumins. The blocking potency of HiQ Pro-Block is superior to most other conventional formulations in producing a high signal-to-noise ratio.
HiQ Pro-Block may also be used as effective diluents for antibodies.
HiQ Pro-Block eliminates the need for matching species with the link antibody and is often, more effective at reducing non-specific background staining than normal serum.
HiQ Pro-Block does not contain biotin. The reagent is filtered at 0.2 microns.
