   I just saw a recipe for some kind of immunohistochemistry where
they suggest using Saponin instead of Tween-20 in the washes -
something about it being a better soap-like-thing that Tween. Does
anyone know the scoop on this - what is the difference, and why
do people use it insteadof Tween? Please reply to
mlevin at husc7.harvard.edu. Thanks.
