Re: frozen/unfixed tissue
|From:||Gayle Callis <email@example.com>|
You can fix frozen sections in NBF do the H&E. You may lose frozens off
slides if they are not fixed in some way. Have collected frozen sections,
immersed into NBF in a rack, and stained as much as a week later with H&E,
worked just fine, like a paraffin section. Just rinse away fixative with
water then stain, etc-----
There was discussion on this last week, check archives for more info.
