RE: edge effects

The edge effect comes more into play from the outer edges of the actual
specimen air drying, not so much from the section on the slide itself.

OK a question for my own gratification. What causes the so called edge
i.e. increased none specific staining around the edge of sections, with IHC.

I have never seen the effect with IF. I know what everyone says, it's from 
partial drying around the edge of sections. However I have seen it even in 
sections completely flooded.
