BioGenex has developed solutions for antigen retrieval, decal retrieval in decalcified tissues, and nucleic acid retrieval for in situ hybridization (ISH) applications. BioGenex’s new EZ-AR™ Elegance retrieval solutions eliminate common issues such as improper heat distribution, buffer evaporation, tissue drying, and boil-overs during antigen retrieval. Using EZ-AR™ Elegance solutions with the EZ-Retriever® Microwave System streamline the retrieval processes, including deparaffinization, rehydration, and antigen retrieval.
Antigen retrieval procedure
The quality of the staining results depends on adherence to the antigen retrieval protocol. Briefly, the reagent containers are firstly filled with antigen retrieval solution, followed by placing the rack of slides into the reagent containers and then placing them inside the EZ-Retriever® Microwave System for treatment.
