Subject: MEthanol-free floating

       I normally work with free floating IHC In brain tissue. Normally I
quench peroxidase activity with H2O2 0.3% in PBS during 30min. Allegledy,
even 5min in the normal 5% concentration would cause damage because free
floating sections are a little bit brittle. But what about the use with
methanol to protect the tissue? I heard that methanol is used to prevent
tissue damage can it be used with free floating sections?
 Thank you
