Re: bone IHC
I recently had a great deal of trouble with this situation,
I found that drying the slides flat in the oven for up to a week made a big
Most of my sections were coming off while cooling down from a full immersion
citrate retrieval at 85C ( in water bath), I found that by allowing the
colution to cool quickly by adding citrate iceblocks, was the best answer,
now i lose very few sections.
