RE: [Histonet] fixation and embedding eyeball


What kind of fixative are you using? We use Davidson's fixative for our
eyes (including dogs), embed them in paraffin, cut them at 4 microns and
the structure of the eye stays together beautifully. Good luck!

Dear all,

we have some problems with the fixation and/or embedding of an eyeball
the different structures don't stay together. Now we wanna try celloidin
embedding but we don't have any experience with that technique.

Could you give us some information to start the celloidin embedding
who has experience with fixation and embedding of whole eyeballs?

Many thanks in advance for any help
