Re: [Histonet] I use the Fisher Microprobe Staining system

From:Patti Loykasek

We use the Microprobe & love it. It's inexpensive, uses little reagent, very
consistent heat & results. It does have a few quirks that you need to watch
out for - be sure & use cap-gap slides, put tissue low on slides, carefully
watch that your reagents drain & pick up well. It's important to have nice,
thin sections. Once you get the feel of what to watch for, it's great. Be
sure there are surfactants in your buffer. If you need more info, contact
me. Good luck.
