RE: In need of optimal AR for frozen sections....

From:"Dawson, Glen"

I don't retrieve frozen sections at all.  Since their proteins haven't been
cross-linked by formalin, antigen retrieval isn't needed like it is when
dealing with a formalin fixed paraffin embedded piece of tissue.
Good Luck,
Glen Dawson

Dear All
I am a newcomer for ICC, and I need a protocol for frozen sections
regarding antigen retrieval. I am strage for frozen sections! 
Would anyone tell me the optimal protocol for antigen retrieval of frozen
sections? I usually use pressure cooker method, and what is the time for
AR, and buffer solution pH 6.0 or pH 10.0, etc....? 
Thanks in advance
