Re: [Histonet] preservation of unstained 20 um sections on slides for later DNA research
We have had pretty good success with drying them overnight, vertically, then putting them face to face, wrapping them tightly in parafilm and then putting them into a ziploc and expelling the air.
And then store at -20.
We have only done this on 4 to 5 micron sections, and have them stored for up to 3 years and they retain their antigenicity fairly well.
