Re: [Histonet] Washing out formalin fixation

From:Rene J Buesa

I think you are right in assuming that Teri was referring to some sort of antigen retrieval but, if that was the case, it was a quite obscure way of asking and that is why I thought that she was referring to "washing out the formalin" because many researchers hate the smell of formaline and perhaps wanted to have a less "odorous" specimen to handle.
  I think that perhaps some antigen retrieval could be obtained by wahing the sections but perhaps the risk of losing the section (peel off) is very big this way.
