I'm not exactly sure what your question is, but I'll give you my best
effort.  I have used both of Qiagen's antibodies, as well as Invitrogen's,
Clontech's and Babco's for detection of 6-his tagged proteins.  Clontech's
hexa-his antibody gave me the best specificity, but gave a weaker signal
(you can always use a lower dilution, though).  Clontech's Penta-his
antibody gave a good signal, but with a little more background.  Clontech's
antibody was comparable to Qiagen's penta-his in terms of signal and
specificity, Invitrogen and Babco rounded out the list.  I think Babco (now
under a new name) has a different 6-his antobidy available.

Hope this helps!
