[Histonet] nail sectioning

From:"Bliss, Mary E."

Hi to All,


Does anyone have a good procedure for fixing and cutting in good
fingernail and toenail sections?  We are trying to come up with
something which will allow us to produce a good stainable slide with ALL
of the tissue still intact on it!  I have heard about using
trichloroacetic acid but can't seem to find a procedure anywhere.  Have
also heard about /tried Nair and soapy water.  Does anyone have any
information to share?  


Humbly yours,
