Re: Decal & IHC


I use formic acid for decal and have no problems with IHC markers.  I have
done many studies testing decal and found formic acid to be the best for
me.  Formic acid is even better than edta for my purposes because edta
affects proteoglycans and formic does not.  I use commercial decal from
Decal Chemicals called Immunocal.
