I use the AEC chromogen (Dako catalog #K346989) for my melanoma cases. I use
a aqueous mounting media, placed on the tissue only, dry it completely on a
hot plate. When dry I coverslip it with permanent  mounting media(don't
place it in xylene), dry coverslip. Works great, and the color doesn't fade.

hello dear fellows,
   i have an IHC project on paraffin embedded melanoma cases; some of them
being heavily pigmented. i have seen many protocols based on H2O2 to bleach
the pigmented ones, but i am not sure about any possible effect on antigen
retrieval.please guide me .
