I've found, that kappa and lambda mRNA CISH is reliable for specimen
decalcified with 5-10% formic acid. Decal with harsher acids like
hydrochloric acid should be validated, because any acid will cause
degradation of nucleic acids. We use the CISH kit from Zytovision.

Betreff: [Histonet] kappa and lambda by CISH

Hello All,
Anyone currently running Kappa and Lambda by CISH?  I am in the process
of validating the Ventana products.  Due to the ASR status of these
products the vendor is extremely 'tight lipped'.  I have the stains
worked up and have completed a 25 case validation. Does anyone know if
this test is not to be used on decaled specimens??
Thank you
