Re: [Histonet] FSGO
I used to have fish gelatin, a green gooey super thick liquid purchased
from Sigma but it was not oily.
I have not used it for routine IHC non serum blocking step in lieu of BSA,
a normal serum or casein blocking but some people in EM swear by it.
You may want to check up on some immuno-electron microscopy methods, that
is where I have seen it used.
I know it was discussed many years ago on Histonet, a keyword search may
bring it up. Fish gelatin rather than fish skin gelatin.
