[Histonet] RE: T Cell Heat retrieval using microwave pressure
I am using the rabbit anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody (SP7) from
LabVision at 1:500 (60 min, RT) visualized by EnVision anti-rabbit/HRP
and DAB+. HIER is done with Tris-EDTA pH9.0 (15 min boiling + 10 min
cool-down). In case you prefer citrate pH6.0 then go down to 1:200
with the primary.

I am trying to demonstrate T cells using Polyclonal Rabbit Anti human
CD3, T cell (DAKO ENVISION). The control tissue is tonsil and using a
manual procedure. I have increased the time in the microwave pressure
cooker from 5 up to 30 minutes (pH 6 buffer) and have no success. The
antibody is incubated for 30 minutes (recommended) but I have gone as
high as 1 hour. I am using AEC and Mayers counterstain. Any help or
advise would be greatly appreciated.
