IHC Storing samplesIHC Fixing
Posted 25 September 2011 - 09:17 AM
I have some questions regarding storing of samples midway through the protocol. Is it okay to store samples after fixing so that I can stain the next day? If so, should I store it dry or in solution? Would storing it dry affect the quality of the staining? Thanks.

The storage will depend on how they are fixed and what sort of sample it is - cells on a coverslip can be stored in the -20 for a while, but blocks of mounted tissue are best stored in the fridge or at room temperature.
