Subject: [Histonet] Citrate Buffer pH

I have a procedure for deparaffinizing (their word, not mine) tissue 
sections in order to do immunostaining using the Vector MOM kit.  It 
calls for heating the section (briefly) in a microwave in 0.1M Citrate 
Buffer.  The procedure  does not specify the pH of the buffer, just to 
make it by mixing 0.1M NaCitrate and 0.1M citric acid.  Does this sound 
familiar to anyone out there?
