Since I have stated that we have made our own fungus controls out of an orange peel there has been a few inquires on the Histonet asking how this was done.
Our Chief of Pathology, Dr. William Lane, claims that it is an old family recipe and should be a closely guarded secret. Since we are all one big family on the Histonet I was given permission to give out this top secret protocol. Pass this information along only to those that you completely trust.
Take an orange and let it sit at room temperature until it starts to mold. This may take several weeks so you have to be patient. The molding process can be excellerated by transferring mold from some other source to the orange. A moldy piece of bread (penicillin) could be used. The bread itself will not stand up to processing. We injected the orange with some mold we found in Dr. Lane’s coffee pot (aspergillus). After the orange is good and moldy just cut some of the peel off and process on a routine cycle. The peel holds up well. You can then embed, cut and stain like it is a normal piece of tissue.
For those of you try this I would like to here about the results. Good luck.
Now I’m hungry.
