Re: HEIR on Plastic

From:Neil Hand <>


Presumably you mean for LM studies; there are a few including McCluggage et
al. (1995)  Immunohistochemical staining of plastic embedded bone marrow
trephine biopsy specimens after microwave heating.  Journal of Clinical
Pathology 48:pp840-44.  This paper used Polarbed 812, which is a similar
epoxy plastic to Araldite.

Hope this is of help.

Has anyone out there in Histoland done any antigen retrieval on Plastic
