Subject: [Histonet] RNA later 

Hi everyone,
There was a thread earlier this year involving treatment of RNA-later
stored tissue such that it can be embedded and cut without fracturing.
I found one answer on the archives referring to a quick cold DEPC water
rinse prior to OCT.  Does anyone else have any advice as to how they
have handled this?
