I have experience with working with cryostat ,but not a lot working with
paraffin embedding. Recently, we changed to paraffin embedding in the lab.
Can someone help me and guide me to do paraffin embedding? What do I have
to do to prepare the tissue cassettes, how is this done? I have the concept
but I want to be sure. How do you use the embedding rings? Is there a good
book that will show me how to do paraffin embedding step-by-step?

We are going to use a Citadel tissue processor (from Shandon) and I have
never used it before either. Hope someone can help me on this.
