Re: [Histonet] artery sectioning
Rather than increasing water bath temperature I decreased it. I left my
artery sections (5 micron not 4) on a low temp. (about 37-42 degrees C)
water bath for up to an hour....then dried the slides vertically at room
temp. overnight. I probably cut 50 or more slides before I found the
perfect section (of course then I had to get the perfect stain).
People had told me to put a cap full of methanol in my water bath but I
didn't have any success with that. Another trick was to put Downy fabric
softener in the water bath but I didn't know how much and it just made a
big mess of everything.
P.S. I recently did the HT and the HTL and passed them both. Feel free
to email me if you need any more help.
