RE: Paraffin

From:"Gutierrez, Juan"

Hi Stacy.  We currently use polyfin for both, but in the past I've used
paraplast for processing and polyfin for embedding.  Each method has its own
advantages, as well as disadvantages, so in the long run its up to you to
decide what works best for you.  I wouldn't change things if they are
working well for you.  There really isn't a "right thing to do" when it
comes to this.  
Good Luck,

Stacey, paraplast is a good wax, I would always the same wax for
infiltrating and embedding.

Hi all.

Could you help me with paraffin preferences?  Currently, we use paraplast
paraffin from Fisher for both infiltrating and embedding.  What do you think
of using this for both processes? Is there a better way?

Thank you!
