Most formalin-fixed tissues require an antigen or nucleic acid retrieval step prior to any immunochemical staining. The retrieval process breaks some of the methylene bridges that cross link proteins in formalin fixed tissues and allow antibodies or RNA/DNA probes to bind to unmasked epitopes or nucleic acids. Heat epitope or nucleic acid retrieval are most often performed using a conventional microwave oven or water bath. The TintoRetriever Pressure Cooker is a solution for laboratories looking for a comprehensive, effective, and reliable retrieval system.
