Refrences for Araldite Methods

I have just recently started doing araldite processing for renal core biopsies
at my lab. The techs here have been doing them for at least ten years, but the
only reference book that we have is one copyrighted from 1978. All of our
methods from processing to staining come from this book (Histologic Technique
for Araldite Tissue Processing).The first tech who started doing this technique
went to a training program in the mid-eighties and trained everyone else. With
all the advances in histology, I know that there has probably been some type of
modification in methodology. I was wondering if anyone who does araldite
processing on a regular basis could pass on some more recent references or
perhaps their staining procedures. We perform a Trichrome-Jones, PAS, and H&E on
all our of our native renal core biopsies that we receive to be araldite
processed. Thank you!
