TintoRetriever Digital Pressure Cooker
The Bio SB TintoRetriever Pressure Cooker
The Bio SB TintoRetriever Pressure cooker is a precision-controlled heat source capable of maintaining a constant and reliable temperature while minimizing the potential for evaporation of the working solution. The TintoRetriever Pressure Cooker can be used for a variety of molecular pathology applications including IHC, FISH, and CISH.
Most formalin-fixed tissues require an antigen or nucleic acid retrieval step prior to any immunochemical staining. The retrieval process breaks some of the methylene bridges that crosslink proteins in formalin fixed tissues and allow antibodies or RNA/DNA probes to bind to unmasked epitopes or nucleic acids. Heat epitope or nucleic acid retrieval are most often performed using a conventional microwave oven or water bath. The TintoRetriever Pressure Cooker is a solution for laboratories looking for a comprehensive, effective, and reliable retrieval system.
