As far as the CD117 is concerned, we're having good luck with NeoMarkers
monoclonal cocktail.  We do retrieval with BioCare Medical's ReVeal buffer
in their DeCloaking Chamber(pressure cooker) for 2-2.5" before putting on
the Ventana instruments.  We have found it necessary to store our control
slides in the freezer or cut fresh...I will give you further ordering info
if you want it.  We use Ventana's PR(1A6) are relatively happy with it.  Our
protocol for PR involves retrieval in citrate buffer in the DeCloaking
