<html><DIV id=cdiv> <P>Monique, We use Histogel for processing spices and on rare occasions small fragments of tissues or parasites. We like it. Before Histogel, we used 5% nutrient agar with formalin as preservative, but the Histogel is much easier(and we don't have to make it). We keep it refrigerated and melt it in a beaker of hot water(it melts easier than our agar). When needed, we cut it the size of a piece of tissue and process the same as tissue. It processes well even on our short processing cycle (2.5 hours). We cut and stain it the same as a regular piece of tissue with no problems. <BR><BR>Best of Luck, <BR>Barbara Stancel <BR>USDA, FSIS, OPHS, Eastern Lab <BR>RRC, 950 College Station Road <BR>Athens, Georgia, 30605 <BR><BR><BR>>From: Monique Tourand <MTOURAND@MAILDROP.SRV.UALBERTA.CA><BR>>To: <BR>>Subject: Histogel <BR>>Date: Wed, 26 Jul 2000 14:09:03 -0700 <BR>> <BR>>Hello to everyone, <BR>> <BR>>I just recieved a sample of the Histogel to try as we were t
