Tintoretriever biocare decloaker decloaking chamber HIER heat-induced epitope retrieval nucleic acid

Cost Effective Heat Induced Epitope Retrieval (HIER) System

The Bio SB TintoRetriever Pressure Cooker allows users to perform heat induced epitope retrieval (HIER) without the use of a less-reliable microwave oven or water bath.

TintoRetriever Pressure Cooker Overview & Features

The Bio SB TintoRetriever Pressure Cooker for Heat Induced Epitope Retrieval (HIER) 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 Bio SB 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 induced epitope or nucleic acid retrieval are most often performed using a conventional microwave oven or water bath. The Bio SB TintoRetriever Pressure Cooker is a solution for laboratories looking for a comprehensive, effective, and reliable heat epitope or nucleic acid retrieval system.
