Re: [Histonet] RE: curl sections

From:Kathleen Spencer

My original post some time ago was about sections that curl in the 
buffer, whether they curl on the knife or not. There was a post 
yesterday, his curled in the buffer only. They curl up so tight that IHC 
is impossible.
You can not say "they will flatten out" any longer, because in many 
cases, they do not. They should, but they do not. For over one year we 
have been fighting this problem. And I assure you that we have tried 
everything. My frustration and despair is monumental.
