Swiss Roll

From:Jeff Silverman

Just grasp whatever you want to roll, intestine or other alimentary tract
tissue,ovarian cyst wall, hydrocele, amniotic membranes, etc with forceps
and twist the forceps, winding the tissue around and around. Place pins
through the rolled up thingie and carefully pull out the forceps and place
the roll in fixative until it hardens a little. Slice with a fresh scalpel
blade into slices that fit the cassettes. I am proud to say that I can slice
all but the slimiest amnion with little or no fixation by slicing with
little or no pressure, but this takes practice to avoid squeezing the roll
out while slicing.
