Intended Use:              For In Vitro Diagnostic Use
                                         Polymerized horseradish peroxidase (pHRP)-labeled anti Mart-1 (Melan A)
                                         antibody (Mart-1 pHRP) is intended for laboratory use to qualitatively identify by
                                         light microscopy the presence of Melan A in sections of formalin-fixed, paraffinembedded
                                         and/or cryostat tissues using immunohistochemistry (IHC) test
                                         methods. The clinical interpretation of any staining or its absence should be
                                         complemented by morphological studies using proper controls and should be
                                         evaluated within the context of the patient’s clinical history and other diagnostic
                                         tests by a qualified pathologist/physician. This conjugate has been pre-diluted and
                                         optimized for IHC use without further dilution.

Introduction:
The Mart-1 antibody recognizes Melan A, a protein with 118 amino acids, which
is a melanocyte differential antigen. It is present in melanocytes of normal skin,
retina, nevi, and in more than 85% of melanomas (Orchard GE, 1998, Kageshita
T, 1997). This antibody does not stain normal or tumor tissues from nonmelanocyte
lineage. The key component in this kit is polymerized horseradish
peroxidase (pHRP) labeled mouse anti-human Mart-1 monoclonal antibody
(clone A103). The ihc Blocker provided in the kit used prior to applying pHRPMart-
1 conjugate will reduce background staining. Chromogen 3,3’diaminobenzidine
(DAB) is used in this kit.
