Does anyone rock or shake their slides during incubation steps? I recently
had a product e-mail given to me for a slide container intended for this use.
The theory being the same as used during western blots; that it would reduce
the antibody concentration needed for good staining and that the antibody
solution would be reusable. 

I have protocols that call for washing steps on a shaker, but I had never
thought of how it might affect the actual antibody incubation nor come across
a protocol that calls for it.
