Hi Flow-people,


  I have a researcher working with Siberian hamsters (not Armenian or 
Syrian) and looking to do antibody staining on leukocyte subsets.  I was 
wondering if there is a mAb staining protocol out there specific to 
hamster, if a mouse/rat protocol should work just as well, or if someone 
has had experience with Siberian hamsters who would be willing to share 
their protocol and experience.	I've seen some general Ab staining 
protocols, but each seems to have a little bit of difference in 
procedure/reagent use.	I've seen a few questions about hamsters on the 
list and one specific to Siberian hamsters, but no specific answers.  
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
