Re: Who is first?

From:John Auld

When, oh, when should we block endogenous peroxidase. IMO like many aspects
of IHC  it most definitely varies.
I normally blocked before HIER, however, could not get CD4 to stain well.
Changed the blocking step to after the primary - problem solved. Many
autostainers also block after primary. So in the end for MOST routine
antibodies I guess it doesn't matter much if at all. However there will
always be the oddy which breaks the rule.

Happy staining
