Re: [Histonet] Antigen Retrieval w/ B&D Steamer.....
This is how we do it...
If you are using Citra, preheat Citra for 30 minutes, you can do this while
your slides are running down to water. Put slides in for 20-30 minutes, Cool
down to 40 degrees before rinsing in APK.
If you are using Trilogy, we start with two coplin jars of trilogy. Place
your slides in the first jar as soon as they come out of the oven (DO NOT
RUN DOWN TO WATER) Place coplin jars side by side in steamer and heat for 30
minutes. Remove slides from first trilogy and transfer to second trilogy
that has been preheating beside first trilogy. Steam another 30 minutes.
Remove slides and immediately wash in several changes of apk wash.
