Is a special processing protocol needed?

To prevent biomolecule degradation during processing, dehydration must begin with at least 80–100% ethanol. Use of a low-melting paraffin with a melting point ≤56°C is recommended, and the incubation time in liquid paraffin should not exceed 3 hours.

Examples of processing protocols successfully used with the PAXgene Tissue System are listed in the appendices of the PAXgene Tissue Container Product Circular and PAXgene Tissue FIX Container (50 ml) Product Circular.
