[Histonet] Re: Mouse lungs OCT and curling

From:Gayle Callis


How thick are you cutting?  What is the temperature of the block and 
knife?   Do you use a brush or antiroll device?  How do you pick up the 
section? Give me more details about HOW you do your cryosectioning, what 
kind of cryostat, high or low profile blades, etc - then I will 
comment.  We never get curled lung sections, they are flat.
