We use Dako's antibodies with a steamer.  They are beautiful.  We no longer
use the pressure cooker.

Does anyone pressure cook the paraffin sections before  immunostaining for 
Kappa and Lambda?
Our regular protocols : no pretreatment for B5, Protease for buffered 
formalin. I have found that
there are a lot more plasma cells get stained after pressure cooking but 
backround is heavy though.

Thanks in advance for your input.
