  For years we had problems with our Kappa and Lambda IHC stains, but I 
think we have finally got it right!  We are using Dako LSAB2 detection kit 
and prediluted Dako Kappa & Lambda antibodies.  We do not perform HEIR as we 
do an enzyme pretreatment only (with Dako Proteinase K).  This gives us 
great, consistent results.  Good Luck!
