RE: [Histonet] Frozen section of plastic stent

Cathy I would use the tape transfer system from Instrumedics to hold
everything together but you will probably need to use steel or tungsten
carbide knives.

Subject: [Histonet] Frozen section of plastic stent

Happy New Year Histonetters!!
Any suggestions for cutting plastic (silicone) stent embedded in OCT on the
cryostat.  I'm cutting at 10 microns, -28 C and about every third or fourth
section is good.  I am moving the blade every 20-30 sections.
Most of the sections are badly folded or fractured.  The stent will
eventually be part of tissue, farther into the block.
Thanks in advance for the help.
