BioGenex De-Wax, Rehydration, and Antigen Retrieval System
BioGenex has introduced a one-step system for preparing formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sections for immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining. The system, EZ-AR2 Elegance, is designed to perform de-wax, rehydration, and antigen retrieval in one step, and allow processing of around 100 slides in less than 30 minutes. It is capable of producing staining results for over 400 antibodies when it's used with the firm’s EZ-Retriever microwave system or its Xmatrx staining system. Enhanced antigen retrieval allows higher dilution of antibodies and shortens incubation times for many antibodies, enabling reduced cost and increased throughput, the firm said.
