I remember seeing at the Michigan Histology Meeting a product called Histo
Gell.  Could someone please help me jog my memory as to who makes it (and
their phone number).  I remember this stuff is like agarose in that it is
heated up to melt it, then can be used to pre-embed tissues before
processing so that the tissues will remain in the correct orientation.

Has anyone used this stuff before?  Do your tissues come out looking ok, or
is there some distortion or shrinkage?  Anyone have any good home-made
recipes for similar stuff?

Thanks in advance!
