[Histonet] BCL2 High pH retrieval

From:Amos Brooks

         Try High pH antigen retrieval (pH 10.0). The steamer for 1/2 hour 
should be fine. I can't avouch for the detection kit you're stuck using 
with a Ventana stainer, but it should work. I would suggest a non biotin 
detection kit like Envision from DAKO or Mach3 from Biocare (I'm sure there 
are others). It seems high pH retrieval increases endogenous biotin.
