Having prepared the tissue specimen for immunolabelling, it is imperative to perform the incubations with a protocol designed to maximise the specific signal and minimise the background. Some incubation conditions may cause the tissue sections to be removed from the glass slide.
Typical tissue section adhesives such as poly-L-lysine, Elmer's glue, chrome alum, etc... are not suitable for use with immunogold labelling, because of the increased background caused by the attraction of gold particles to the adhesive on the slide. Furthermore, the surface of glass slides is uneven, and it is activated by the silicon tetrahedral structure. It provides active sites for absorption of proteins or reactions with chemicals and reagents. Therefore it is important to minimise this possibility by coating the surface with a material which is of low reactivity towards reagents.
Biobond produces a very strong adhesion between the glass slide and the tissue section for subsequent incubations, as well as a protective layer to minimise the interaction between the charged glass surface and the reagents.
Biobond is suitable for all kinds of tissue specimens including, but not limited to, paraffin wax, resin sections, cell smears, cytospins and cryostat sections.

Biobond is supplied in a 20mL vial, which is sufficient to coat at least 1000 slides.

Storage: 0 - 5 deg. C
