RE: Tissue in OCT - how to "Thaw??? HELP!!

From:"Gutierrez, Juan"

We always thawed in cold PBS with no damage.  We found it good practice to
have a bottle of PBS always handy in the refrigerator.  Hope this helps.

Subject: Tissue in OCT - how to "Thaw??? HELP!!

Hello Histonetters/Colleagues, 

I have a piece of 'Pouch Young' (Wallaby) tissue approx. 1mm. in size that
was fixed in 4%  PFA then frozen in OCT. I now want to do 'WHOLE MOUNT
IMMUNO. & am wondering what procedure IS best to 'thaw' the tissue with
MINIMAL damage to the cells - OR anyone with previous experience RE: this
situation can offer advice. Thankyou in advance,
