	I use 2 different paraffins an infiltrating paraffin that is softer
and an embedding paraffin that is harder. They are from surgipath. Reason
behind this is that I work with animal tissue, mostly mouse brain and have
found that the softer paraffin infiltrates better[I think], but the harder
embedding paraffin facilitates less compression when cutting. I am sure
there are paraffins out there that would do the same job for both, but at
this time I have neither the time or the inclination to change. If its not
broken don't fix it!!
