While, in theory, using antibodies against Fc Receptors (FcRs) is the best way to eliminate unwanted signals mediated by FcR binding, you may not always have a well-optimized antibody pool against FcRs sitting right in front of you for your experiment.

In this blog, we share an "old school" way of blocking by just using a serum that is routinely available in most labs.
