DAB Quanto Chromogen contains Diaminobenzidine (DAB) in buffer. DAB is a suspected carcinogen. Do not pipet by mouth. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Reagent is acidic and can cause burns if skin contact occurs. Handle with care and dispose of according to regulations. DAB Quanto Substrate contains Hydrogen Peroxide in buffer. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Obtain a strong brown staining that can be used for up to 2 weeks at 2° to 8°C or up to 1 week at room temperature with Thermo Scientific™ DAB Quanto Chromogen and Substrate.
DAB Quanto has been validated in combination with both UltraVision LP and UltraVision Quanto and provides four major benefits.
Strong staining—ideal to quantifying cells and protein expression
Less mixing—reducing personnel time and stress
Less disposal—cuts down waste
Lower risk of mixing errors—supports higher staining consistency
3,3' Diaminobenzidine (DAB) is a widely used chromogen for immunohistochemical staining and immunoblotting. The DAB Quanto is an entirely new formula for a diaminobenzidine-based peroxidase substrate that develops faster on tissues sections reducing incubation times. It utilizes novel chemistry to provide greater sensitivity, generating a crisper, darker, insoluble precipitate. The standard working dilution is 30μL of DAB Quanto Chromogen per 1ml of DAB Quanto Substrate. The use of liquid components reduces some risks associated with the handling of powders or tablets. The DAB Quanto offers an added advantage, as the working solution is stable for up to 2 weeks at 2 to 8°C and up to a week at room temperature enabling continued use and minimizing waste disposal.
