Analytical Phase: Protocol and Antigen Retrieval

  • 168 Accesses

Abstract

A few general comments with respect to methods will be followed by review of the key individual steps in the Analytic Phase. The following is designed primarily to highlight those parts of the process that may impact results; it is not intended to substitute for a required laboratory staining manual, guidance for which may be found elsewhere (Hewitt et al. 2011; Taylor and Cote 2005; Cartun and Taylor 2018).
