Re: Storage of frozen sections

From:Geoff McAuliffe

    In my experience, it depends. I have had very good results with GFAP immunostaining after several months of storage. On the other hand, immunostaining for tyrosine hydroxylase was noticably degraded in finer nerve fibers but cell bodies were OK.
    Optimal storage conditions may vary depending on what you are looking for.
