Unless the original frozens were fixed in Zamboni's or the 3-step
NBF/methanol/acetone protocol there will probably be no antigen there to

Subject: HIER on frozen tissue sections

Has anyone tried doing heat-induced epitope retrieval on de-stained (H&E)
frozen tissue sections?  I have been asked to stain two frozen section
slides, one for ER (clone 6F11) and one for TTF-1 (clone 8G7G3/1) because
there is no tumor left in the permanent sections.  Thanks!
