Immunohistochemical Requirements

*Sections prepared in other laboratories for staining here should be cut at 3-4 µm and mounted on poly-l-lysine (Sigma P1524) treated slides. Sections should be dried overnight in an oven at less than 60 degrees C. It is advisable to submit extra slides as several dilutions may be necessary to achieve optimal results.
