RE: [Histonet] fibrin for cell blocks

From:"Elizabeth Chlipala"


I use a 2% agarose solution.  Basically, you spin the cells down, remove
the supernatant and then re-suspend in the agarose and spin again.  You
can remove the agarose pellet, process and embed in paraffin.  I'll send
you the pdf of the reference I have used.

Subject: [Histonet] fibrin for cell blocks

Dear Histonetters: 
Does anyone have experience using fibrin or another substance as a
matrix to add a cell suspension to when  making cell blocks.  My
colleague wants to make cell blocks to section and stain for a research
study but there will only be a small amount of cellular material.  She
remembers seeing this done in the past but needs to know where to obtain
the reagnets and what procedures to follow. Thanks so much
