Re: Kappa and Lambda

From:Jennifer MacDonald

We had a major problem with background on Kappa/Lambda staining.  We were
able to get rid of most of it by using ReVeal by Biocare Medical.  We used
it in the pressure cooker as a heat retrieval method.  It cleaned the slides
up nicely, including the control slides.
