Borax pretreatment for brdU

From:Carl Hobbs

"Dear David,
Considering the the use of HCl etc. you obtained an older BrdU IHC staining
protocol. Here we once tried to stain BrdU containing FFPE sections just by
using a standard antigen retrieval method (citrate pH6.0). It worked
perfectly fine!"

Chris, Interesting! I tried this last week and, altho'  I got positive
nuclei, the number of positives was far higher when I used the traditional
HCL/ trypsin method. Did you compare the two?
