Dewax Solution Kit consists of ready-to-use solutions for the removal of paraffin wax from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues, as part of an immunohistochemistry (IHC) procedure on Biocare Medical’s ONCORE Pro Automated Slide Stainer. The clinical interpretation of any staining or its absence should be complemented by morphological studies and proper controls and should be evaluated within the context of the patient’s clinical history and other diagnostic tests by a qualified pathologist.
Dewax Solutions 1 and 2 (DS1, DS2) are water-based solutions for the removal of paraffin wax from FFPE tissue specimens, as part of an IHC staining procedure on the ONCORE Pro Automated Slide Stainer. Removal of paraffin wax must be performed prior to antigen retrieval and the application of reagents for immunostaining. The solutions are provided ready-to-use and are intended to be applied sequentially as defined by the staining protocols on the ONCORE Pro Automated Slide Stainer.
