No matter what you do, with thick sections you will always get background noise. Try to use thinner sections.

  Hello - I have a researcher who has done IHC on her tissues with good 
success. Now she is trying to do fluorescent antibodies on thick sections 
to be able to do 3D imaging. I have no experience with this technique. Her 
problem, tremendous background staining. Can anyone give us any tips for 
reducing this staining? Thanking you in advance,
