RE: [Histonet] Help Tissue falling off

From:"Tarango, Mark"

Has your fixation or processing times been altered?  The fact that the
control section adheres and the patient tissue does not, makes me think
that you might have a problem with fixation (since you even tried drying
overnight).  You might want to check it out.

We have been having a problem with tissue falling off our slides during
IHC (benchmark).  Nothing has changed we are using the same protocol,
same slides, and same control.  The controls are staying on and we don't
double dip. It doesn't matter if we air dry overnight, microwave or oven
dry not all antibodies mostly CD's.  Anyone else having problem.  We use
Colorfrost Plus Micro Slides from Erie Scientfic bought through Cardinal
