I would say our "routine" HIER is 2 - 3 " in the decloaker after it gets
up to temp. and then a cool down equivalent to however long it takes for
the pressure to return to zero.

Subject: [Histonet] re: Biocare Decloaker HIER

For those of you who use Biocare's Decloaker for HIER on regular cases
(not prion protein retrieval), could you tell me how long you do HIER
with these machines?  I normally do my prion cases in a Decloaker for
20', with a 25' cooldown, but I suspect that regular tissues don't need
that length of time at high pressure/temp.  I have an extra Decloaker
and am considering switching to this device for my normal case work
HIER, if it's time efficient.

Please reply privately.   Thanks.
