If you are really seeking for a confirming study, publish your data and probably there will be a confirmation study.
I went to the website you indicated and it seems to me that your original posting is just a "subtle and delicate" advertisement.
Just my opinion otherwise, why don't you tell us all what is that you do to obtain your rejuvenating results?

Having problems getting good Immuno staining and in-situ hybridization results with older slides?

I am writing to see if histonet can suggest any scientists who may be interested in helping us with a study related to a  "slide rejuvenation" process we are developing.

We think  we have found a way to significantly improve the antigenicity of proteins in older archival FFPE preserved slides. Initial tests seem to indicate that our process can allow slides of 5-10 years age, possibly older, to respond to IHC analysis as if they were cut that day. The process may have additional uses and benefits too, including better preservation of cut sections, enhanced ISH results, stabilization of labile proteins and standardization / optimization of IHC staining protocols. We are excited about this development, but we are seeking some independent labs to help us verify our findings.

Please feel free to call me to discuss, or pass on this email to any investigators you may know of who are exploring ways to make better use of older archival slides.
