RE: [Histonet] cytospin slide staining

From:"Bruijntjes, J.P. \(Joost\)"


I've done anti cleaved caspase on ethanol (70%) fixed tissues and I used
an EDTA-buffer pH 8.0 with good results. The first time I used this
antibody I've tried the citrate buffer pH 6.0 with no results at all,
but changing to pH 8.0 gave me better results.

Subject: [Histonet] cytospin slide staining

Hello, histonetters:
Has anyone done cytospin slide staining before? What antigen retrieval
method you used?
I am staining bronchoalveolar lavage fluid slides with anti-active
caspase3 and none of my experimental and control slides showed positive.
I am wondering if that is real or I did it wrong since I don't have any
positive control slides for this antibody and I never did this kind of
staining before.
Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated!
Have a nice day.

Dahui You
