Thank you for your enquiry. The exact protocol used is as below: 1. Deparaffinize sections in 3 changes of xylene, 5 minutes each 2. Hydrate in 2 changes of 100% ethanol for 3 minutes each, 95% and 80% ethanol for 1 minute each. 3. Rinse the sections in distilled water followed by 0.1 M PBS. 4. Quench endogenous peroxidase for 10 min with 3% H2O2 in 0.1 M PBS and wash 3 times with distilled water, 2 minutes each. 5. Retrieve epitopes by incubating the sections at 98-100° C in a microwave in 0.01 M citrate buffer (pH 6.0) for 10 minutes. Cool down in room temperature for 30-60 min. 6. Rinse the sections in 0.1 M PBS for 3 × 2 min. 7. Block the sections with 10% normal goat serum in 0.1 M PBS at room temperature for 30 min. 8. Incubate the sections with primary antibody at appropriate dilution in 0.1 M PBS (2-4µg /ml) overnight at 4 ° C. 9. Rinse the sections in 0.1 M PBS for 3 × 5 min. 10. Incubate the sections with biotinylated goat anti-rabbit IgG (SPN-9001, Vector, 1/200 in 0.1M PBS, 37° C, 20 min) 11. Rinse the sections in 0.1 M PBS for 3 × 5 min. 12. Incubate the sections with HRP-conjugated streptavidin (SPN-9001, Vector, 1/200 in 0.1 M PBS, 37 ° C, 20 min) 13. Rinse the sections with 0.1 M PBS for 3 × 5 min followed by 50 mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 7.6). 14. Incubate with a peroxidase substrate solution. 15. Rinse the sections in distilled water. 16. Counterstain for 10-30 seconds with a hematoxylin counterstaining solution. 17. Rinse the sections with tap water. 18. Dehydrate through 70-80-90-95-100-100% of ethanols, each 3 minutes. 19. Clear in xylene for 2×3 min. 20. Coverslip with mounting medium.
