Carnoy'S. whew thats a good fixative for some things but not for
membrane antigen integrity.  I posted earlier that a citrate boiling
procedure may uncover some antigens from formalin fixed sections but
i've not been able to uncover the reference yet.  Are you doing in
situ's or is this just immuno-histo, if so I would suggest another
fixation approach.  I had no luck using carnoy's fixed tissue in
staining for cd markers.
