I'm hoping for a few quick replies on this one... we're submitting a cost
proposal on Friday for equipment (I just found this out at 5:30pm on

#1)  Does anyone do IHC staining for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) in
elk/deer using a DAKO AUTOSTAINER?  That is the machine that I know and
love, and I'd rather not have to set up a completely different staining
procedure using different equipment altogether.  If so, would you share your
staining protocol with me?

#2)  Can someone give me some information on the Decloaker device?  What is
it?  Who sells it, etc.?  I assume that it's some sort of antigen retrieval
system, instead of a Star Trek weapon.
