Hi Adriana,
    If you are using Heat Induced Epitope Retrieval, check your spec sheet as
it may recommend using PK. Both seem to work upon a glance but upon close
examination it makes a big difference in what stains and what doesn't. I may be
able to help further if you give us the protocol you are using.
