[Histonet] RE: Paraffin sections

   For my NSH wet-workshops I tested the option of going up to endogenous
   PO blocking, HIER and then overnight storage at 4C in PBS with 1% BSA.
   Next  day  we  started at the protein blocking step and then the rest.
   Staining was as good as running the whole procedure in one day.

   Hope this info helps.

    I have heard that paraffin sections that have been deparaffinized and
   run  down  to DH20 but for some reason cannot be stained that day, can
   left  to  air dry and then be placed back into H2O when they are ready
   staining.  Does  anyone  have  any  experience  with this technique? I
   just leave them in DH2O till I can get to them, usually the next day.
