Vector Laboratories' TrueVIEW Autofluorescence Quenching Kit offers the first effective technique for removing unwanted fluorescence in formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue samples, blood cells and structural elements such as collagen and elastin. Autofluorescence often impairs or prevents the use of immunofluorescence assays when the specific stained antigen cannot be distinguished from the interfering background signal. This is particularly problematic with tissue samples preserved using the FFPE method. TrueVIEW specifically targets background autofluorescence, and retains the intended specific fluorescent staining. The kit is effective across the spectral range from blue to far red and is compatible with commonly used fluorophores. This new quenching reagent enables researchers to identify specific markers that cannot be seen without removing the background noise of autofluorescence
