I used it for 4 minutes at about 118 psi and most antibodies worked really 
well.  I was having huge problems with the Er and Her2 and this solved them 
(almost) overnight.

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 

Please reply privately.   Thanks.
