RE: [Histonet] Microwave retrieval

    Just to point out a steamer is cheaper than a microwave. So for a lab on a budget the steamer is even better. You should give it a whirl some time. You may find some improved consistancy. Of course if you are content with what you have I stand by something I always say: All labs are different, What works fine in one lab may cause problems in another. If it aint broke don't fix it.

Being myself a poor research tech, I also use the household 
microwave method. I stick my slides in coplin jars filled with 
Tris buffer with the tops off then stick them in another container 
and microwave for 45sec twice, changing the water in between. It's 
been working for me.

You have a right to be here and whether or not it is clear to you, 
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at 
peace with G-d, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your 
labors and aspirations,in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace 
in your soul.-Max Ehrmann,"Desiderata"
