In short, no. Sounds like one of those "that's the way we've always done it"
things. I have used the DAKO polyclonal and a 15' room temp digest with
their Proteinase K. No problem.

Dear all,
As some of you may be aware from previous e-mails I am currently
immunostaining FFPE sections to identify blood vessels.
Does anybody have a good reason why on a protocol I have been shown,  the
sections are treated with 0.2% proteinase (protease I think) for 8 mins at
37 degrees, immediately followed  after washing by the more conventional Ag
retrieval method using trypsin.
Any help and ad
