As an industry person and company employee I sometimes reply off line.  This
is only due to my belief that companies should not use Histonet as a forum
to sell products.  If we have something that may help in a shortage
situation I will note that to all.  I agree sometimes I have seen questions
appear to go unanswered that I would love to hear the answer or comment made
by those who do that procedure daily.

Dear Greg,
   I whole heartedly agree with you.  I have complained about this before.
It didn't do any good to complain as I see it is just as bad, if not worse.
It shouldn't be called the "Histonet" since there is no "net".  Maybe
"Histopost" would be better.  I use to collect different treads and finally
gave up because so much of the thread was missing.    It's nice to know
others feel the same about it.  Sarah

Personal replies are a problem on this listserver.  There have been several
threads recently where the original questioner thanks "everyone" for their
replies, yet I have seen few, if any, replies posted. That means we are all
missing out on some good information.

Please, all who use this listserver, don't ever think that your replies
don't appeal to everyone else. If it is not truely personal in nature, and
addresses the question, we would all like to see it! I am always amazed at
the seeminly inconsequential tidbits that appear here and turn out to be
enormously useful later on.

I Lynn,
I'm learning more and more about In situ Hyb. daily, so I am no
expert by any stretch. I hadn't thought of the waterbath as a source
of RNase contamination until you mentioned it, but is it possible that
the RNA in the tissue is protected buy the hydrophobic nature of the
paraffin?? If we can't find out for sure, I guess using DEPC treated
water wouldn't be too much of a hardship! Looking forward to
following this one up. Hope all replies are posted for all to see!
Cheers!  Greg
