Processing tissue for MMA embedding

From:Nancy Maronto

Could someone help me with a processing schedule for goat vaginal tissue 
with a small metal implant to be embedded in MMA? Size of tissue is 
approximately .5cmx.5cm.  I have a tentative schedule for processing with 
ethanol, which is: 60% 1hr, 80%(x2) 1hr each, 95%(x2) 1hr each, 100% (x2) 1 
hr each, 100% 6 hrs, xylene 2 hrs, learite 3 2hrs, MMA x3 for 2 days each 
change.  Any suggestions or if someone has a protocol that they would like 
to share, I would appreciate it.  thanks
