AW: [Histonet] Acetone fixation for immunofluorescence protocols

We usually let the frozen slides airdry for 30-120 min and then begin with
IF without fixation. We do IF on human skin (IgG, IgM, IgA, C3c, Fbg). It
seems to work, because there were no complaints. - but our pathologists
haven't got any comparison. ;)

Betreff: [Histonet] Acetone fixation for immunofluorescence protocols


I am having a bit of difficulty with an immunofluorescence protocol (IF). I
am using fresh tissue fixed for 10 minutes in cold acetone. Are there any
fixatives that are well suited to IF protocols? Has anyone attempted to
stain unfixed tissue?
