Re: [BULK] - [Histonet] Formalin fix---then freeze?

From:"Fred Underwood"

Hi Kathy,

It is possible.  Though, depending on the tissue, it is more difficult
to section.  Like lung for example.  I usually end up grubbing tissue
out of the stock bag when a fat stain is requested.  I would recommend
washing the tissue thoroughly before freezing.

I have been asked an unusual (stupid?) question and hope someone can
help.  Is it possible to formalin fix a tissue and then put it in OCT
and freeze it to cut frozen sections?  I know it doesn't make much sense
but apparently a contract we have was worded this way (obviously not
proof read by the pathologist) and now I need to treat the tissue this
way if possible.  Help!
