HistoBioTec is pleased to introduce:

OPTISTAIN: Premium Antibodies from Dianova

Dianova’s premium antibodies are sold world-wide under the brand Optistain. The Optistain-line concentrates on two groups of products: Antibodies for human pathology and antibodies for research purposes.

The first group comprises outstanding antibodies for human pathology that are suitable for standard formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections and allow for excellent staining results.  First in this range is the new, unique point mutation specific antibody: the new anti-human IDH1 R132H antibody, clone H09 (catalogue no. DIA H09). 


The second group consists of research antibodies with unique properties for a variety of areas. Among them is the Anti-Mouse CD31 Antibody Clone SZ31 for standard FFPE tissues (catalogue no. DIA 310). Antibody clone SZ31 is the first antibody, which reacts specifically with formol-resistent epitope of murine CD31, meaning that the antibody SZ31 is suitable for a reliable detection of endothelial cells of vessels in standard formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections.  See more information below.

The Optistain premium antibodies are selected and manufactured in close collaboration with leading German pathological institutes and distinguished academic establishments and allow most powerful laboratory analyses.  Dianova aims to gradually expand the range of Optistain IHC antibodies with the addition of new unique antibodies in the future.

HistoBioTec is the official North American distributor for Optistain antibodies from Dianova. HistoBioTec does not sell any other Dianova antibodies. For a complete product list, please view the attached catalogue.
