we tried both the polyklonal CD3 from DAko and the monoklonal CD3 from
Novocastra. Both work well, but in my opinion, the monoclonal antibody
doesn't stain all the T-cells, or at least, stains fewer lymphocytes than
the DAKO polyklonal. HIER is done for 10 min in pH 6 citrate-buffer in a
preasure cooker, dedection kit is from DAKO. All material is fixed in
neutral buffered formalin for 24 hours, BM-trephines are decalcified for 24
hours (at least) in EDTA on a shaking board (that reduces the time for
complete decalcification a lot).
