Re: [Histonet] Zinc.

From:"Jackie M O'Connor"

I've been forced to use a zinc only fixative (Streck Tissue Fixative) for 
a couple of years - BD (Pharmingen) recommends the use of this for many of 
it's antibodies - i.e. Caspase-3 and  CD31 - works great, but the 
morphology stinks.  I'm in the process of 'crossing over' to find 
antibodies that will work on FFPE as well on my xenografts.

         When choosing an antibody the companies usually give the 
method of preparation, frozen, formalin, zinc etc. When they say zinc, do 
they mean a zinc only fixative or a zinc formalin mixture?
