Genie,
For a cheap way to do immunos I highly recommend that you do them using
the Shandon Sequenza, (which is sort of by hand and not really.) You'll
need their racks and their coverplates. Then I highly recommend that you
use Dako concentrated antibodies for S-100, cytokeratins and ER/PR, their
detection systems and their pretreatment systems, particularly their "Target Retrieval System"
(TRS).  Good Luck!
