[Histonet] polyvinyl sponges in processors

From:"Sylvia Poulos"

Hi all!
I have some tissue that has polyvinyl sponge embedded in it.  I need to
process it but was wondering if anyone knew if it will interfere?  I
don't mind if it stays there and I cut sections with it in the tissue or
if it dissolves in the xylene...just wondering if I should do anything
special.  If polyvinyl dissolves in xylene will the tissue collapse on
itself, and if so, is there anything I can do to prevent this? As
always, thanks for the help!
Enjoy the day! Sylvia
