What are your restrictions for temperature and dehydration, clearing and
infiltration.  Above 0 covers alot of ground.  Can you use paraffin?  Are
you looking for frozen sections?

Hello Everyone,

I am looking for an embedding medium that is not toxic and hardens to an
appreciable stiffness above 0oC.  Someone suggested OCT compound and
gelatin, but he has only used it at -20oC, and he doesn't know how hard it
can get above zero.  Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
