Re: [Histonet] Cryostat sectioning of mammary gland

From:"Stephen Peters M.D."

Hi Tessa, 
I have a comprehensive tutorial on frozen section technique on my web site which I
 think you will find useful as a starting point.
I address cutting fatty tissues from the standpoint of a surgical pathologist which with 
good technique will get you very acceptable sections. If you need absolute perfection with 
very fatty tissues I think your best bet is Instrumedics tape sytem. I have no experience with 
it but I believe it is suppossed to work with fatty tissue.
