[Histonet] Frozen section fixing problems - but paraffin works!

new monoclonal antibody in parathyroid tissue, and I use the ABC-DAB reageant

Washed in PBS x 5
standard protocol: hydrogen peroxide 0.3% x 30 min, donkey serum 5% x 30
min, primary antibody (mouse) 4 deg overnight, secondary (goat anti-mouse),
Does anyone have any
