[Histonet] In situ on paraffin sections - specifically bone

Hi Everyone!

I am wondering if anyone out there has any experience doing FISH or ISH on paraffin sections - either automated or not (We have a Ventana and are acquiring a BioGenex Xmatrx)- but I am specifically interested in doing it in paraffin embedded bone tissue.  I have pulled a few publications from labs that are doing IHC and FISH on the same paraffin section, but have mostly seen this done in tumors, not in bone.

Any information or direction would be appreciated!  Thanks!
