Re: tissueprep paraffin
We use tissue prep for processing and tissue prep
II for embedding. The last time the tissue prep was on back order, we were
told by the company that you could use the tissue prep II on the
processors. When we did this we started noticing that our GI biopsies were
very brittle and hard to section. We finally figured it out that it was
the tissue prep II on the processors when we were able to switch back to regular
tissue prep the problem went away. We are now looking into Richard Allan's
paraffins, we're loosing hope with tissue prep!! My 2 cents worth.

last until this time. The manufacturer recommends using TissuePrep 2 as
a replacement. Can anyone who has experience with these paraffins tell
me what the difference is between the two? Is there any
other paraffin you would recommend as a replacement (one that is similar
Thanks in advance!
