"Alcohol based" suggests to me an absence of formalin. In which case,
epitope retreival is not indicated.
Also, you didn't say if it had been working and stopped or if this was
a new marker for your lab.

I have to turn to the experts here.? I am having problems with the
MIB-1.? I am having an issue with the patient samples working.? We use
an alcohol based fixative....it has always worked until recently.

I have tried everything I can think of to no avail.? I have decreased
the titer, increased the incubation, tried a different retrieval
solution, tried a different detection...nothing is working.

Anyone else having any issues?
