[Histonet] RE: Envision-AP

From:"C.M. van der Loos"

I was thinking the same way as Gayle did. But apparently this wasn't the problem. I wondered what AP chromogen you are using? I have very good results using the newest Dako Liquid Permanent Red substrate kit.
The KPL universal blocker Gayle suggested I don't know. However, I am familiar with a similar Dako product called Dual Endogenous Enzyme Block. This blocker also applied before the IHC procedure also effectively destroyed some of my epitopes resulting in a bit too clean staining result indeed.... So be careful with this stuff.  
Furthermore, I am using PowerVision-AP with great results.
Hope this helps.

         I'm using TBS as suggested by Dako. With and without Tween, but 
still the same result.
