The Fan Lab (Lab Director, Assistant Professor Dr. Yi Fan) at the Department of Radiation Oncology in the Smilow Center for Translational Research designed a device that can hold 30 paraffin-fixed tissue slides in a heated buffer during the antigen-retrieval procedure of immunohistochemical staining. In this procedure, this device, along with the slides, will be submerged in 100 °C citrate buffer with a pH of 6.0 for around 1 hour. Since such a high degree of temperature and chemical resistance was required, the Biomedical Library’s 3D Printing team printed the device in high-temperature resin on the Form2 printer.
