[Histonet] Cryoembedding media comments continued

From:Gayle Callis

Dear Paula,

I did not say OCT was THE best, only that it WORKS best for our particular 
(hmmm peculiar?) murine tissue work.   I am keeping an open mind and maybe 
there will be another that works for me someday.  I know people from other 
parts of USA who prefer other brands of cryomedias for their murine work.

At least you do what we do and keep trying other cryomedias.  Also, I think 
mfr's should know what has happened in special situations so they are aware 
of my problems with their product outside of a clinical situation.  If you 
ever find another cryomedia you like, let me know - I'm all for new things 
that work well.

Happy holidays
