Marge, from the transport medium we rinse in sucrose for 15 mins, take the tissue out wrap it in foil and freeze it -80 deg C, it keeps indefinitely until we cut it.

Hi Netters,
I've searched archives but couldn't anything on how long it is OK to leave
tissue in sucrose. So the question is, could I store tissue in sucrose for 2
days? Refrigerate? or would I wreck the tissue?
I'm going to get a lot of tissue very late Friday afternoon and if I have to
snap freeze it I will be here until Saturday! I'm not usually this lazy, but
it's been a week of Mondays, and I am realy, really tired!
