CK AE1-AE3
  

All IHC stains will include a positive control tissue

  
  • This antibody is best used as part of an antibody cocktail (created in our lab) with cytokeratins CAM5.2 and MAK6; this antibody cocktail is called "Cytokeratin cocktail or CK cocktail"
  • When used in a cocktail, this cocktail can identify most cytokeratins
