Re: Over Processed Tissue

From:christine lee

Apart from the overheating of tissues already mentioned I have found that tissues which have partially dried in the theatre due to lack of quick fixation can also look like overprocessed tissue. I agree with Ian Montgomery that the term is a confusing one and needs to be replaced.The artefacts are due to reasons other than "overprocessing".

Dear Techs.,

Can over processed tissue be salvaged???   If so, then does anyone have a
procedure for soaking to revive tissue and reprocessing it afterwards??  Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
