RE: [Histonet] Low temp Antigen Retrieval for Bone Sections
I haven't tried this method of antigen retrieval, but TEG buffer is
Tris-EGTA buffer. The usual formula (I have seen a couple of variations) is:
Distilled water 1,000 ml
Trisma base 1.21 gram
EGTA 0.19 gram
The usual target pH is between 8.95 and 9.0
EGTA is ethylene glycol bis(B-aminoethyl)-N,N,N',N' tetraacetic acid.
(The capital "B" in the above name represents "beta". My email program
doesn't support the symbol.)
