[Histonet] Apoptosis detection in plastic embedded tissue

From:"Eijl, drs. T.J.A. van"

Dear histonetters,
We have been trying to stain apoptotic cells in Carnoy fixed, BMA/MMA embedded mouse lungs using the chromogenic DEAD-END Kit by Promega. However, this kit has been designed for formalin fixed, parafin embedded tissue. To cut a long story short, we did not get it to work properly.
Now I am enquiring if anybody has knowledge of an apoptosis detection method that can be used on plastic embedded tissues as described above.
Thanks in advance,
