[Histonet] Re: Histonet Digest, Vol 13, Issue 30

From:Amos Brooks

         I have found that potassium permanganate usually at least weakens 
a signal, so if you already have a weak signal you may have difficulty with 
it. The bigger problem is that sections love to fall off or get torn up 
when this is used. Even if you use silanized slides you are bound to 
experience some section loss. I wish there were a better way to remove 
melanin but I've not seen any that give any better results without the same 
problems. My advice: use low concentrations for a longer time and proceed 
with caution.
Best of Luck,
Amos Brooks
