		I really feel that your best bet is to get some training at a good
histology lab. so that you can get some of the basics. Even a week or two
would be beneficial. Failing that, get someone in to set you up and help
you get started.
Good histology takes some time to master the techniques so that you get
consistent results. If you have no experience with paraffin then you need
to start off on the right foot.
