All our ReadiUse™ reagents require minimal hands-on time. This 4% formaldehyde solution is a ready-to-apply format. It is widely used for fixing cells in fluorescence imaging applications.


Quick Preview

This protocol only provides a guideline, and should be modified according to your specific needs.

1. Perform formaldehyde fixation: Incubate the cells with 4% formaldehyde for 10-30 minutes at room temperature.

Note: Avoid any methanol containing fixatives since methanol can damage actin during the fixation process. The preferred fixative is methanol-free formaldehyde.


2. Rinse the fixed cells 2-3 times in PBS.


3. The cells are ready for immunohistochemistry/immunofluorescence.

Note: Store the fixed cells in PBS at 4 oC.
