I must second that motion.  I'm involve with Plastics.  Does anyone know or recommend a good Vacuum Desiccators to help with plastic polymerization in the embedding process.
Cathy Mayton, Linda Jenkins or Dianne Mahovlic I saw in the histonet archives that you all had commented on "bone in plastic".
I am looking for any MMA procedure that could be used  to embed undecalcified implanted and non implanted bone or implant material to be used on a Motorized, tungsten carbide knife microtome or the Exakt.
I also need info or active procedures on the embedding and microtomy process(i.e. the equipment and material to be be used and techniques in retrieving the specimen)
Would any of you all be willing to share your current methods?  I'm trying to adapt the best procedure for the different protocols we encounter in our laboratory.

Histotechs are awesome people, I'm very proud to be a part of this profession. You responded in mass to my breast specimen dilemma, with a plethora of suggestions and encouragement. I feel I can face another day now, get back into the fray and face my staff with renewed courage. Histonet is incredible, we are very fortunate to have this media to reach out to each other so quickly. Thank you for caring.
