Sample fixation is a crucial step for every successful IHC/ICC experiment. During the tissue preparation process, appropriate sample fixation can help preserve morphology, prevent tissue degradation, ensure antigenicity, and
protect cells from damage.
Since different types of fixatives have varying properties, choosing which fixing solution to use will depend on your sample type and antigen. We recommend testing to determine which specific type of fixative will be most
effective for antigen immobilization in your sample.
