[Histonet] Re: endogenous peroxidase blocking in acetone fixed preps

From:"C.M. van der Loos"

   Dear Brian,

   The solution as you suggested works fine indeed for abolishing
   peroxidase activity in erythrocytes. However, it kills the endogenous
   peroxidase activity in neutrophils just marginally.

   fixed preps.

   I have had success using the following treatment:
   1% H2O2
   0.1% Na Azide
   in PBS
   add to acetone fixed section/cell prep/smear for 10-12
   rinse 3X with PBS
   Carry on with blocking, primary antibody etc.
