RE: [Histonet] storage of cryosections

From:"Charles Scouten"

Once the tissue is well fixed (24 hours in fixative?), storage in PBS or
in Fixative is not critical.  Storage in sucrose until it sinks will
ensure that freezing rate is not as critical, since smaller and fewer
crystals will form in the disruptive sucrose environment.

Charles, a question:
When the tissue is emersed in sucrose 30% is the storage than less
critical because there are hardly any cristals formed?
