RE: Immunocytochemistry on CSF
If you use a saline wash, use a balanced electrolyte solution (e.g.,
Tis-u-sol, Normosol, PlasmaLyte). Don't use normal saline, it will rapidly
destroy cells if they have not first been preserved or fixed.

Subject: Immunocytochemistry on CSF
I have a highly cellular CSF which also has more proteinaceous gunk than I
have ever seen . This gunk is completely screwing up the immuno by turning
everything brown. Any ideas on how to cure this? We are thinking of trying
a saline wash before centrifugation. all ideas are welcome.
