Look at the instructions carefully for mounting & coverslipping your slides when using Qdots. They are very sensitive to quenching if you don't use the proper mounting media. I kind of gave up on them, and would recommend you use Alexa Fluors instead. Or talk to Invitrogen's tech support regarding your specific applications, they have very good tech support...

I would like to know if anyone has experience with Streptavidine-Qdots
for the labeling of Acetone post-fixed slides (IHF). How do you wash the
slides in order to get the best signal to noise ratio?
Thank you for your input on the matter.
