RE: [Histonet] effect on IHC staining with the use of Cytolyt for cellblocks

From:"Tony Henwood"

Remember the cytolyte solution is an alcohol-based fixation. Very little
formalin, so enzyme pre-treatments will tend to chew up the sections.
Try the IPXs leaving out any enzyme unmasking. Some antibodies may not
recognise their antigens (eg p53)
