RE: [Histonet] fixation of fresh frozen section

From:"Edmondson David (RBV) NHS Christie Tr"

I recently  heard a presentation where they spoke of Periodate-Lysine-Paraformaldehyde in the context of Frozen sections.   The coagulant fixatives do not alter the proteins chemistry so on might suggest no loss of antigenicity, the "Gold Standard".   But the morphology of PLP is much better.   It is fifteen and more years since I used it myself and maybe a search would be a  quicker way to find the concentrations.   I ahve an email contact if you need to ask him.

Hi all


When I do immunocytochemistry on fresh frozen section I fix most, if not
all slides with acetone. Sometimes I use cold methanol because the
datasheet tells me to do so. Is anyone of you who prefer other
