Fw: [Histonet] tissue loss


----- Forwarded by Trine Gejsing/Ballerup/DK/LEO on 14-07-2006 07:13 -----

Maybe you are boiling the slides "too hard". If the tissue contains a lot 
of collagen, that gives problems.
Start out on full effect 900W or so. It would take like 9 min. When the 
buffer is boiling, immediatly set the effekt on 450W and cook for 25 min.
I assume the tisuue is on Frost+ glass ?


[Histonet] tissue loss

Hi - I'm trying a citrate buffer antigen retrieval protocol.  After I 
have dewaxed the slides, I put them in citrate buffer - protocol says 
microwave on high for 25 minutes.  However, when I remove the slides all 
the tissue has slid off the slide.  Any suggestions? Melissa
