Removal of the GMA is practically impossible. There are some published
methods for staining GMA sections eg:

A methyl blue/fuschin stain: Bennett, H.S., Wyrick, A.D., Lee, S.W., McNeil,
J.H., Stain Technology 51(2);71-97.

Castro,M.D.,(1985) "A Haematoxylin - Eosin Phloxine Stain for tissues
embedded in Glycol Methacrylate" J. Histotechn 8(1); 23-24.

Dear Histonetters
We are desperately  trying to perfect the staining of routine 
specials and H+E`s  on Gma  embedded sections. We are not being able 
to get nicely stained sections. Is there anyway of removing Gma resin?
Any help will be appreciated. Many thanks.
