Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue is useful for a variety of applications including the targeting of proteins, RNA, and DNA by means of Immunohistochemistry (IHC), in-situ hybridization (ISH) and fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH), respectively
Application Note: ProSci’s human tissue slides can be used with any antibody shown to be effective in formalin-fixed tissue using a standard immunostaining protocol. In order to avoid false negative results from DNA or RNA sequences not being present in a 4µm cellular cross-section, 10µm tissue sections are recommended. 10µm single tissue slides are available upon request. This product has not been evaluated for effectiveness in ISH or FISH applications.
Some tissue types may require extra attention as they may contain high levels of endogenous biotin, peroxidase, or autofluorescence. Please Note: ProSci now has over 700 different lots available for a wide range of tissues. Many of these lots are not listed online. If you don't see what you are looking for please call us.
