Direct immunofluorescence detection can be less sensitive than indirect detection. You may need to use a higher concentration of antibody or higher gain settings to achieve similar staining intensity compared to indirect immunofluorescence staining. In our internal testing, indirect immunofluorescence staining results in about 3-fold signal amplification compared to direct immunofluorescence staining.View more FAQs
