RE: [Histonet] Paraffin types(new)

From:"Luck, Greg D."

Hello All,
We use Formula "R" from Surgipath for infilitrating (cuz it's
inexpensive) and Polyfin from PBS for embedding as it is a superb
ribboning and semitransparent paraffin.  A little softer than Tissue
Prep 2 but superior in ribboning.

Same paraffin for infiltration and embedding.  Our choice is especially
good for bone because it is a harder paraffin and works well for soft
tissues even very thin sections i.g. 1 to 2 um.  Since we do a great
deal of bone 
work, this has been a good choice.    Tissue Prep 2 from ThermoFisher 

We have used the Surgipath combination infiltration media followed by
their embedding media with great success.
