[Histonet] Re: H&E on plastic sections

From:Gayle Callis

Hi Patty,

This was discussed  on Histonet just a couple of months ago, in 
detail.  You have to remove the plastic with 60C xylene so there is NO 
plastic left in the tissue.  Neil Hand did this nicely, and did at least 3 
changes to get the MMA out, then rehydrate section and stain - you may have 
to adjust for your H&E protocol, whatever tweaks are necessary.   One nice 
lady put her staining protocol on Histonet.
