The Effect of Antigen Retrieval on Cells Fixed in 10% Neutral Buffered Formalin Followed by Transfer to 70% Ethanol


Fixation in 10% neutral buffered formalin prior to transfer to 70% ethanol for one week has been shown to adequately preserve immunorecognition of PCNA, cytokeratins AE1/AE3 and EGFr. This study investigated whether 12 hrs fixation in 10% NBF plus transfer to 70% ethanol for 4 weeks would similarly preserve immunorecognition to an extent where antigen… (More)
