h2/n fixation issues


Dear Friends,
I am leaving thurs. AM to attend the CAP Her2/neu conference in Chicago,
it is not too late to send me your list of issues I should look into at
the conference.

Response from DAKO regarding MW fixation:

Dear Patsy,

I apologize for taking some time to get back to you on this matter.  We
not recommend the use of microwaves in the fixation process nor have we
tested HercepTest on specimens fixed in this manner.  We recommend
processing" (per spec sheet) for all HercepTest specimens and the use of

microwaves does not fit these guidelines.
