I'm posting this for someone else, so please - if you can help - reply to
his address (it is at the bottom of the message), but I'll keep an eye out
for reponses and send them on to him. I think he wants paraffin sections.
The material is already formalin-fixed...sounds like it is archival, but
not embedded.

I'm a post graduate student, and i'm working on the pineal gland, a gland
located in the middle of the brain.

I'd like to know what would be the better way to prpare it for a thin cut
and a hard fixation??

I'm just gonna do first, light microscopy but with very thincut. And the
other problem is that i want my pineal gland to be very hard because there
are some crystal in it and i don't want them to move during the cuting.

Thank you for answering!!
