Well I must say, I'm impressed! How many people did you have performing
this many immunos? And how many different proteins were you trying to
detect on a "typical" run? With all of the slide handling and epitope
retrieval steps, not to mention blocking and counterstaining, I don't
see how this was done in an 8hr day. Did you all wear capes?

| Doing immuno manually is entirely dependent on the volume. In a lab where
| I worked previously, we would do up to 400 slides by hand (we had a panel
| of over 100 diffent immunos to choose from). This was 8hrs HARD work. We
| had specially constructed perspex boxes to use as a moisture chamber, but
| in emergencies, large oblong Tupperware  containers with moistened filter
| paper or roller towel were also used. The slides would be raised from the
| paper by means of blank slides placed at right angles to the immuno slide
| so as to avoid  breaking nails when trying to overcome  the surface
| tensiion that would suck the slide down onto the surface.
