Usage and Handling

See the IHC protocol for more specific usage instructions.

Certain antigens may utilize a combination of retrieval methods. Antigen retrieval may not be required for frozen cross section as cross links are formed during formalin fixation.

Advice: In order to achieve sufficient retrieval or avoid tissue destruction or over digestion, appropriate temperature, pH, buffer concentration, incubation times, and other conditions should be carefully selected for each particular antigen, antibody, or tissue type after preliminary experimentation by the researcher.

Note: All of Boster's products are for scientific laboratory research purposes and are not for diagnostic, therapeutics, prophylactic or in vivo use.
