CD10(56C6) is extremely robust but, as you correctly point out, fixation
We use it at 1:80 for 1 hour @RT on tissue fixed in Zinc formaldehyde
and de-mineralized, also on B5 fixed material. However, for tissue fixed
in NBF we find it necessary to incubate overnight @RT, at a dilution of
1:40. We did our initial titreing trials on both small bowel(brush
border is positive) and on kidney( glomeruli and prox tubules) fixed in
NBF, ZF and B5 all with and without de-mineralization, in order to
arrive at the dilution and time which gave matched intensities
regardless of fixation.
