Lung Tissue Slide (Squamous Cell Carcinoma) (4 um)

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. Some tissue types may require extra attention as they may contain high levels of endogenous biotin, peroxidase, or autofluorescence.
Applications Info:
Aviva’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 4 um cellular cross-section, 10 um tissue sections are recommended. 10 um single tissue slides are available upon request. This product has not been evaluated for effectiveness in ISH or FISH applications. (Optimal dilution should be determined by user.)
