Hi Histoneters,


I have problem with immunohistochemistry on organotypic hippocampal slice
cultures (OHSC). I have stained them with OX-42(CD11b) and
glucoseoxidase-DAB development but the staining is weak and unsharp. When I
tried the same protocol on rat brain slices the staining is very nice. OHSC
are fixed for 1hour in 4% PFA then 20%sucroze and then glued on freezing
stage and cut with microtome to 30mikron slices. Does anybody have an idea
where is the bug?


Thank you very much

Best regards
