I need to store unstained slides for what might be 6 months to a year.
These slides may be used for some IHC staining. I do not know what
anibodies, but I would imagine they are not the ones used in a routine
clinical lab setting.
I have some options, for storage, please give opinions.
Store the slides in a slide mailer, then wrap in foil and place in -80
Or one of my pathologists talked about coating each unstained slide in a
layer of paraffin. Has anyone done this technique?
I would assume that I just cut, dry, then melt the slide, then dip the
slide in paraffin?
Many thanks for your help.
