No, we aren't but I really wish we would.   I have a boss who is... bless
his heart... 75 yrs old (he makes the Energizer Bunny look lazy)... and
has not incorporated IHC in our labs here.  I don't know why other than he
sees no reason to use it.  The only IHC I do is from a researcher on
campus who is working with hepatitis B.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can enlighten my venerable boss  to
get on the IHC bandwagon???  *vbg*
