RE: [Histonet] IHC on H&E section

From:"DiCarlo, Margaret"


To make the coverslip come off faster, fill a coplin jar with xylene and put
the slides in, cover with a top and then put the coplin jar into a 60 degree
C. oven and agitate the xylene occaisionally and the coverslip will come off
in much less time than soaking at room temperature.  It's a little trick
I've learned.

Subject: [Histonet] IHC on H&E section

I know this has come up before but don't remember the details.  I would like
to do IHC for AE1/AE3 on a slide from a study set that has been H&E stained
and coverslipped for some time now.  Please advise.  Is there a preferred
method for removing the coverslip and maintaining the section integrety?
Destaining the H&E?  Doing the IHC stain on this section?
