I had a group here who were having trouble with their cryo-sections sticking
to the slides. Their samples were rat brains. He found that the Gold Super
Frost Plus worked well with in-situ but not for immuno. At least that is the
comment he wrote down and put on our bulletin board in the lab. Most of the
people in the lab tend to use the Super Frost Plus (not the Gold) and they
seem pretty happy with them.
