EZ-Retriever is a microwave-based pre-treatment and antigen retrieval system invented by BioGenex used for dewaxing, rehydration and antigen retrieval of formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue sections to enhance exposure of antigenic epitopes. This system not only resolves the issues of inconsistency due to different types of antigen retrieval methods by applying different maximum microwave power levels, solution volumes and heating time but it also facilitates the standardization of dewaxing and antigen protocols for high quality and reproducible staining.Have a BioGenex Representative Contact Me

I have been using the Biogenex EZ-retriever system for dewaxing, rehydration, and antigen retrieval of formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) bone sections. My experience so far with the EZ system has been amazing-very quick, user-friendly, easy to handle, and high throughput. I highly recommend the EZretriever system for any tissues that are otherwise hard to get it working with the standard antigen retrieval methods. Also, I am pleased with the ready-to-use antibodies, reagents, and super-sensitive detection systems for immunohistochemistry (IHC) from Biogenex. Using IHC products from Biogenex made optimizations for new antibodies much more straightforward and speedier. Overall, I am very satisfied and highly recommend the EZ-retriever system, antibodies, and super-sensitive detection systems for IHC from Biogenex.
My experience with EZ-Retrievel is great, a comfortable and safe system when performed antigenic recovery for conventional IHC and multiple-IHC. I never had a problem with my tissues and the quality of the results were very reproducible. Thanks!!!
