Composite blocks.

From:"Dr. Ian Montgomery." <>

<html> <x-tab>        </x-tab>In the past and mostly for undergraduate teaching, I've prepared composite blocks of various tissues. You know the sort of thing, pieces of kidney, liver, muscle, gut, lung and brain sandwiched together and stained using a variety of techniques. Works well, although trichromes can be a bit of a bugger when differentiating. For teaching very handy as the students can move from tissue to tissue without changing slide when comparing the structures.<br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>Now, my latest problem and hopefully easily solved. Has anyone tried this sort of thing for IHC. I have 9 pieces of tissue from a very large number of animals which if I can prepare composites blocks off would make my life a lot easier. Does IHC throw up any cheeky wee problems which I've not thought about, eg. tissue dependent retrieval, or is it pretty straight forward.<br> <x-tab>        </x-tab> Comments very welcome, sorry I can't be cloned, grow extra hands or work double, triple shifts.<br> Ian.    <br> <x-sigsep><p></x-sigsep> <font color="#0000FF">Dr. Ian Montgomery,<br> West Medical Building,<br> University of Glasgow,<br> Glasgow,<br> G12 8QQ.<br> Tel: 0141 339 8855.  Extn:6602.<br> Fax: 0141 330 2923<br> e-mail:</font></html>
