[Histonet] can PBS cause background?

From:"Carolyn Johnson"

Hello all,

I have been struggling with high background in frozen mouse sections
processed for immunofluorescence.  A colleague told me that switching from
PBS to a Tris buffer reduced their non-specific background.  Does anyone
know why this would make a difference?  Also, I have tried using 1% sodium
borohydride for my paraformaldehyde fixed sections, but the slide mounted
tissue trapped gas bubbles and made it wrinkly.  Is there a way to avoid the
bubbles under the tissue?
