Hi Karen,
A Histonet button is a badge.  ( badge is the "British" word for a button )

"Button" is the North American word for a badge the small round type with a pin
on the back , I am sure lots of other folks in the Commonwealth had no idea what
was being talked about also .......now we all know.

p.s. they sometimes also get called "pins"

I feel like an eavesdropper since I silently 'listen' to your daily
conversations from my lab here in Scotland. Anyway, many thanks to
Kerry Beebe for the information on antigen retrieval - and I didn't
even ask the question in the first place !  I'm trying to get ER and
PR ICC to work in rat brainstem but it's not easy and mostly all I
get is just background - antigen retrieval may just make all
difference.  By the way, would someone please tell me why there is so
much traffic on Histonet 'buttons' - what are they ?
