Hi everyone! I have just started my adventure with IMC. I need to stain a breast cancer OCT sample, but I am getting a very strange image (I let the section dry overnight). Does anyone have any idea what is going on with it?

Hi Natalia,

I have seen this a few times on different tissues. It is likely oil possibly from the triton step. You can try some extra washes with MQ Water that has usually worked for me!

Best wishes,
