I do it all the time. Yes your antigen-retrieval method will work.

Subject: [Histonet] IHC on paraformaldehyde-fixed

Has anyone ever done IHC on parafomaldehyde-fixed tissues, and if so,
how well did it work?  Will the same antigen-retrieval methods used with
formalin-fixed tissue be applicable?

I'm asking for an investigator, who already has his tissues fixed in
