Re: [Histonet] (no subject)
As most of my methods are proven by practice, not by science, please try this on an old block first:
When you cut the section before dipping in a fixative, hold the slide's empty side against the back of your hand or arm (covered of course by a glove) to warm the OCT and 'melt' the section onto the charged slide. As soon as you see the OCT liquefy, drop it gently into the acetone. We've used 95% etOH as a fixative as well--seems to be a bit gentler on things that roll off...but again I caution--practice on a case that has been signed out as a parallel.
