RE: (hot antibody and retrieval solutions with paraffin emu
never used hot antibodies but I have used the retrieval reagents that
deparaffinize with the BioCare Decloaker (pressure cooker) Reveal and Borg
(high ph) they are called. They work well in my experience. I have done
studies comparing their use to other retrieval reagents that require
deparaffination before use and had no differences in final results.

Subject: (hot antibody and retrieval solutions with paraffin emu
Has anyone tried a hot antibody technique and how well did it work?
I came across a method using an antibody incubation at 60C on
gluteraldehyde -f ixed , epoxy-embedded sectons , as well as
formalin fixed parafin -embedded tissue.
Also , there is a reference in another paper for using retrieval
solutions that have paraffin emulsifiers in them. So it is a one step
deparaffin and hot antigen retieval. Supposed to save money as
well as time. Time - I can see, money- I am checking out. I am
wondering how well they work. Has anyone out there used them?
Thanks , Margaret
