The background is Bad!
Yes, it is. It compromises data. We have a solution. FluoMuteTM
FluoMute™ ready-to-use reagent to reduce autofluorescence in cells and tissue. Just incubate fixed cells of tissue sections with FluoMute™ for 30-60 min at room temperature, rinse with PBS and continue with immunofluorescence ICC or/and IHC protocols. Treatment with FluoMute™ does not affect cell morphology and the integrity of tissue antigens to be detected with primary antibodies (see bottom image). FluoMute™ is compatible with paraffin-embedded and frozen tissue sections, stem cells, lymphocytes and mammalian cell lines of different origin.
We plan on adding products that will provide stronger signals with fewer protocols steps vs traditional solutions. Stay tuned.
