RE: [Histonet] TRAP staining

From:"Patsy Ruegg"

How are your fresh cells fixed?  In my experience aldehyde fixed paraffin
processed tissue especially decalcified is not the best for demonstrating
osteoclasts with TRAP, although Jackie O'Connor at Abbott has gotten it to
work on formalin fixed tissue if the fixation was not very long.  I use TRAP
on cold methanol fixed bone biopsie's processed without decalcification into
glycol methacrylate.  I would think that the fresh fixed cells should work
fine.

Hi
I would like to try SIGMA kit N85, for staining osteoclats on fresh fixed
cells (reconstructed tissue, and also paraffin embedded secions. Tissue is
fixed in 4 % paraformaldehyde, is there another fixative wich works better ?
Do you think if i must change the way to proceede ?

Thank you very much
