Fw: manual vs automated IHC
|From:||Jan Shivers <firstname.lastname@example.org>|
I wholeheartedly agree with Patsy in the advantage of using a DAKO stainer.
In my lab it is absolutely necessary for me to use my own antibody
dilutions, since I work on several species at a time. An open system allows
me to do just that. Besides, with the DAKO stainer, you can actually SEE
the slides as they are being stained. Being from the old school, I like to
see what's going on at all times. My daily workload is usually 96
DAKO technical and maintenance services are excellent.
