EZ-Retriever System is a microwave based time and temperature controlled antigen Retrieval system used for dewaxing, rehydration and antigen retrieval of formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections. This system resolves the issues of inconsistency from using different types of antigen retrieval methods with varying maximum power levels, different solution volumes and heating time.
Antigen Retrieval is an effective way of unmasking antigenic epitopes on the surface of formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections using microwave heating. BioGenex is the inventor of antigen retrieval enabling technology.
Covered by exclusive patents issued by BioGenex, this method to recover antigenicity in formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue sections has been routinely practiced in Laboratories throughout the world.
This system facilitates standardization of dewaxing and Antigen Retrieval protocols and ensures high quality, reproducible results.
