Fixation technique for Amytracker

Generally, we recommend light fixation using ice-cold ethanol or acetone. This is because formalin-fixation has been shown to reduce the ability to stain inclusion bodies. Otherwise there shouldn't be any issues. You can use paraffin sections or cryosections. Note that epitope exposure and antigen retrieval is not needed when applying Amytracker to paraffin embedded sections.
