Re: [Histonet] michels fixative


  You'll need to wash your samples before processing--clearer more vibrant flourescence.  Two to three 15 min changes depending on size (we put the kidneys/punch skins) on a rotating blood wheel) with sterile n. saline.   Also, be very careful with the outdates on the purchased solutions.  It has a short open time as stated by some manufacturers.
