[Histonet] CD4/CD8

From:Amos Brooks

         I would certainly recommend using Envision (or some non-biotin 
based detection system). Both antibodies work best using high pH retrieval 
which tends to necessitate Envision.
         I can't speak for Dako CD4 as we use Novocastra but we get much 
better results doing the peroxidase block prior to antigen retrieval. The 
H2O2 interferes with the signal. It sounds like a pain but the results are 
clearly better.
good luck,
Amos Brooks
