Subject: [Histonet] CAP Immuno Survey Slides

Hello Histoland. We were wondering if anyone else who may have
participated
in the recent CAP survey had experienced any problems with the labels
on
the
slides. We performed some of the survey by hand (our machine is
down!)
using the Shandon Sequenza coverplates, and it seemed like the label
adhesive was blocking the reagents from passing onto the slide. We
then
repeated some of the slides on a demo machine, after verifying our
antibodies, and even then it seemed like that adhesive was interfering
with
the reagents. We also lost any info we had written on the slide
labels,
even with the impervious markers, during automated processing. 

We didn't remember our survey slides ever having labels before, and
are
just
curious if anyone else had encountered this. Thanks in advance!

In return to the Aluminium localization, 
I would now if an excessive time of fixation (in formaldeide), or an excessive time of etanol 70% imersion (for example 4 days)can induce false negative results to the aluminum? 


Thanks in advance for any information you can provide,

All,

I've talked to the CAP about this issue and they said that they would "take it under advisement". Just goes to show you that those in charge of sending out these CAP surveys for IHC have no experience in the actual staining of IHC slides.

Also, the labels they put on are heavy duty and the adhesive they leave behind is NOT condusive to automated coverslipping (with the Sakura Glass coverslipper). They tend to fall off the suction cup and get broken by the conveyor. I would strongly suggest coverslipping these slides by hand until the CAP decides to stop this craziness.

Dear All,
I would like to ask about a particular problem with eosin-Y staining. I am
using Eosin Y alcoholic without phloxine (from Sigma) and for some reason,
all of the eosin staining comes out of the tissue as it is being
dehydrated. I can actually see that it just drains out. I know that this 
is
part of the differentiation process but it just all comes out. We use the
same staining set for mouse liver tumour tissues with no problem. These 
are
routinely processed (by a hospital pathology lab) rat rectum slides. Is
the phloxine important for "keeping in the stain"? The sections are quite
small. Should I be using a different eosin?
Any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Cathy



Cathy

JB 4 resin is one of the few resins that is water soluble, and 
complete dehydration of tissue is NOT required. In the processing of 
this resin, clearing agents like xylene & chloroform are unnecessary. 
I have used this resin many times, specially for tissue containing 
gels etc.

Regards
Melanie.

Storage of tissue in alcohol won't affect the presence or reactivity of
aluminum. Formalin should not have a deleterious effect either, if it is
properly buffered. I believe long-term storage in acidic formalin (or any
acidic solution) might dissolve aluminum out of tissue, though I don't have
any reference or direct experience to corroborate this.

Histonetters,
I might be looking for a good used microtome in the next few months 
(provided the grant comes in). I have a good working AO820 from the 60's? 
but it has a lot of trouble sectioning anything less than 8 microns thick, 
and I don't have one of those newer disposable blade holders either. I 
will be glad to pay a reasonable price for it. Thanks.

Hello there,
I have some questions regarding embedding and cutting paraffin tissue
block:

1. After embedding, I found there are a lot of bubbles inside the
paraffin tissue block (I put the mold at RT). Sometimes it has,
sometimes not. I donít know why. How to avoid this?
2. Sometimes I found if I put the paraffin tissue sections into
the 37C water bath, the paraffin will be diffused very quickly. Also the
color of the whole paraffin tissue block look strange: white, not clear
white. I am jus wondering whether the method of embedding tissue is
wrong, or something else?

Any kind of help will be very appreciated,

Thanks in advance,

Best,
Karen
