RE: Leaving processed blocks

The tissues have already been impregnated with wax so leaving them is not a problem. Embedding them just makes it easier to cut the sections (incl orientation)

Hi, everyone.  This is a simple question, but I like to make clear of  it.  When I prepare paraffin blockes.  After tissue have been processed, can I leave them in room temperature for one or two days, then embedding them.  Do tissues get more dry this way?  Do I have to embedding them at once?  Thanks.
