Re: [Histonet] oil red in MMA

From:John Kiernan

Embedding in butylmethacrylate and methylmethacrylate
involves passage through solvents (alcohol or
acetone) and the liquid methacrylate monomers.
All these liquids dissolve fat and other
hydrophobic lipids, and the sections will not
contain material stainable with oil red O.
