We use the B&D steamer for all retrievals.  We preheat the reagent for 5
minutes then add the slides for 20 minutes.  Remove them and allow them to
cool for another 20 minutes.  They then sit in buffer for another 5 minutes
before putting them on the Dako Autostainer.

Subject: [Histonet] HIER using B & D rice steamer

One of our pathologists is looking for an inexpensive way to antigen
retrieve tissues for staining with CD3, CD68 and CD56.  I suggested a Black
and Decker rice steamer although I personally have no experience with one.
Is anyone out there willing to share their retrieval protocol?  I (and he)
would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,
