Do you recommend alternate methods for heat-mediated antigen retrieval, such as pressure cookers or microwaves?
Our protocol utilizes a simple, easy-to-replicate heating block approach. However, individual customers have successfully adopted alternative methods using pressure cookers or microwaves. There is a significant amount of variability among these alternative methods, and therefore it is difficult to guarantee reproducible results. Fluidigm has not yet validated these approaches.
