[Histonet] Mounting skin with OCT

From:Gayle Callis


Yes, you are correct. You can embed also skin in OCT, snap freeze then
mount block on block with OCT for sectioning.  We do all samples for
cryosectioning this way. 

OCT surrounds the sample for support during sectioning and sectioning is
easy, The section passes under an antiroll device nicely. Frozen OCT also
is easily captured by brush bristles for brush technic, our favorite way.
