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.

Boster takes great measures to ensure product quality and to provide our customers with comprehensive data upfront. Our antibodies are validated using WB, IHC, and flow cytometry against a panel of over 250 tissues and un-transfected cell lines to ensure high affinity and crystal-clear IHC stains. In addition, we also validate our antibodies in a quantitative fashion by testing them on known quantities of recombinant proteins so that you know what to expect (e.g. if there is 1ng, 2.5ng or 5ng of the target protein in the sample). Every product is covered by the Boster Quality Guarantee, click below to learn more.
