Issues with Your Tissues? Process all Your Slides in a SNAP for Streamlined IHC.

Variability – it’s the challenge you face in traditional immunohistochemistry (IHC) experiments. If you’re handling slides manually, using pap pens, pipetting, dipping and pouring, you risk slide-to-slide process variability, which may affect your results.

The SNAP i.d.® 2.0 Protein Detection System for Immunohistochemistry (IHC) introduces a new capability to the innovative, vacuum-driven SNAP i.d.® 2.0 system. The IHC slide holders allow you to block, probe, and stain up to 12 tissue slides per side (24 slides if both sides are used). Reduced handling time and multiple-slide processing make this system ideal for when you are optimizing antibody conditions and protocols.
