With the aims of sharing information about the technical aspects of immunohistochemistry (IHC) and making it possible to make a suitable choice of antibody for histopathological examination, this technical report describes the results of a questionnaire administered during the period of 2014 to 2015 to members of the Conference on Experimental Animal Histopathology. It also describes the immunological properties of primary antibodies (clone, supplier, catalog number, species reactivity, etc.) and the IHC staining conditions (fixing solution, fixing time, embedding, antigen retrieval method, antibody dilution, incubation time, incubation temperature, positive control tissue, secondary antibody information, etc.) for a total number of 733 primary antibodies (425 kinds of primary antibody).
