RE: [Histonet] re-embedding blocks

We just use the embedding station.  Set them on the hot plate or set them
into the molten paraffin.

Hi everybody:
Just curious as to what oven temperature is generally used for melting down
paraffin blocks for re-embedding.  Is there a temperature that is generally
considered too high either for the paraffin or for the tissue?
