Protein Detection System
The SNAP i.d. 2.0 Protein Detection System for Immunohistochemistry (IHC) represents a much-needed advancement in the IHC workflow. The power of IHC lies in its capacity to localize antigens within tissue samples, thereby identifying the cell types and subcellular compartments in which antigens are located. Traditional immunohistochemistry methods may be subject to process variability; for example, the process typically requires a lot of manual slide handling, as well as the use of pap pens and pipettes. The SNAP i.d. 2.0 Protein Detection System addresses these challenges by systemizing the handling of multiple slides. It decreases slide handling time and enables parallel processing of up to 24 slides at once, reducing slide-to-slide process variation without incurring the costs of automation. In addition, the system speeds wash steps and allows antibodies to be recovered and reused, saving researchers valuable time and resources. The system produces robust and consistent staining, without causing tissue degradation or blotchy artifacts.
