We "dip" the face of cut blocks before we store them, but usually it is the
ones that appear extremely dry when sectioning. It helps keep the tissue
from "sinking" into the block as the moisture evaporates and the tissue
dries out even more. We don't dip the blocks that were fixed and processed
well. I would be interested in the answer you receive on the pros and cons
for routine samples. anita
