Subject: Re: [Histonet] removing tissue from already H and E stained slides.
Is your pretreatment for ER & PR the same? If so, there's no need to remove
a section. The slide can be stained manually. Simply pretreat the slide
(with appropriate controls of course), use a barrier pen around each
section, carefully apply each antibody - 1 per section- & perform your
detection etc.. as usual. If your H&E is on a non-adhesive slide you do run
the risk of losing your sections during pretreatment. Hope this helps.
