RE: [Histonet] overnight HIER

From:"Morken, Tim - Labvision"

Some people are using this method in order to preserve delicate tissue that
is often damaged from high temperature AR. At lower temperatures delicate
tissue seems to stay on the slide better.  The proceedures I have seen
consist of intervals of 16 - 20 hours at 70C or so. 

Here is a paper:

Subject: [Histonet] overnight HIER

Hi everyone.  In a meeting this morning someone mentionned that they had
been toold to do an overnight HIER treatment.  They had never heard of this
and wanted to know more. Is anyone doing this?  Is it simply heating the
slides at say 60C for 12-18 hours in a water bath or is there more to
it-what buffer, what temp??  Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Mark Elliott Vancouver BC
