[Histonet] Cell Pellets in Agar

From:"Johns, Laura [CNTUS]"

Does anyone have a protocol for paraffin embedding cell pellets?  We've had
problems with cell pellets staying together after fixation and during
embedding, and I know that occasionally people use agar or agarose to keep
the pellets compact.  Is it better to use agar or agarose?
