Subject: Re: Skin problems
I work in a dermatology lab. All we cut is skin. We use a product called
HALT. We never have any problems with tissue washing. We face our blocks
and let them soak on ice (put a little water on top of the ice to get
started) for about 15 - 20 min., then we cut our slides, dry them and stain
as usual. We pour two of the bottle caps of HALT in Deionized water (or you
can use distilled) in eack water bath. I recommend you give this a try. It
works very well for us. Good Luck.

Another thing about Halt...it does work great, but contains detergent (which works well to reduce surface tension). If you use too much your sections will sink when you touch them, so be careful.
