I'm working with mouse/rat muscle and trying to fine tune my processing schecdule.
My last run of muscle were very dry. I have a copy of the NSH Animal Processing Manual and trying to strike a balance between those listed on page 5-6. I've noticed most of the protocols do not call for heat or P/V. The scedule I currently use is as follows: 1-70% (hold), 1-80%, 2-95%, 3-100%, 3-xylene all for 30 minutes each and at 38C with P/V. 3 paraffins, 45 minutes each at 55C with P/V. I'm fairly new to research and still trying to make the "mental" switch in handling the different tissue.
