Dako's anti-Mast Cell Tryptase works great.  I use an HIER retrieval buffer 
that incorporates EDTA for 20 minutes (one of Dako's preparation).

Does anyone have experience using DAKO antibody-Mast Cell Tryptase?  We have 
been using giemsa stains but my pathologist has asked me to look for 
something more definitive to identify and stain mast cells.  If anyone could 
offer advice I would appreciate it.
