[Histonet] Need help from Ventana BenmchMark users

Hello Sharon,
We use Ventana's TdT (SEN28)and Dakocytomation's Hepatocyte antibodies.  For the TdT we have found that using the Enhanced V-Red chromogen works much better than the i-View DAB (less background). 
The protocols are:
Standard CC1
Option 1 for 8 minutes (Fc receptor block from INNOVEX Biosciences 1-800-622-7808)
Antibody for 16 min (32 min if using i-View)
A/B block

Standard CC1
Antibody for 32 min at a 1:25-1:50 dilution
A/B block 

These are done on a regular Benchmark, not the LT or XT.  Good luck with it and I hope this helps.

Hi all,
I have been asked to develop stain protocols for TdT on bone marrow aspirates and Hepatocyte Specific Antigen on FFPE tissues. Does anyone out there in Histoland doing these two IHC stains on the BenchMark?  Would you be willing  to share your antibody source and stain protocol?
Thank you,
