RE: IHC drying times
generally air-dry slides at RT overnight and then for 10 min at 80 deg on the
autostainer (Sakura DRS2000) for deparaffinization. If to be done the same day,
we dry at RT until they are put on the stainer - one to several hours. We use
rotate some duties. We have one person who does most of the specimen entry and
processing, two who rotate routine diagnostic histology duties (H&E,
specials) and three who rotate diagnostic IHC duties. All also do projects in
which they will do everything (accession/process/section and stain - routine,
IHC) for the whole project. In addition, each person is responsible for "taking
care" of a given laboratory and/or equipment.
I hope everyone's
Christmas was peaceful and merry!!
I would like to
know how other histology labs dry slides for IHC staining, time and
you guys rotate bench duties (job tasks)? If so,
