There are many benefits associated with direct labeling of a primary antibody:
• Eliminates the need for the use of secondary antibodies thus reducing the number of incubation and wash steps – saves both time and money
• In experiments whereby several antibodies are used simultaneously, cross species reactivity is not an issue as the primary antibodies can be labeled with different dyes
• Commercial sources often do not have the correct antibody conjugated to the required label. By directly labeling the antibody of interest yourself, this hurdle is easily overcome
