HistoGel has not had any deleterious effects on IHC with various
pretreatments and microwaving in my experience. Most of the cytoskeletal
proteins, hematopoietic and lymphocytic markers have all expressed similar
consistent results (as to those embedded in paraffin only) with the
HistoGel. Will keep you posted if I find any limitations to using it on IHC!

	Hi Lynn,
	 I originally started the Histogel question, I had a sample and
	to know what to expect. Since then I have run a test and am really
	pleased with the results. I was able to orientate my teeny tiny
	carotids in the Histogel,  cool the Histogel,   process it and voila
	little cube of Histogel with my carotid perfectly orientated and
	to embed. This is going to save me tons of time, not to mention
	frustration. But I would like to have the same question
	Histo gel  effect immuno staining?
