RE: [Histonet] To Albert C re: Fatty tissue blowing up on waterbath

From:Larry Woody

Put the section on the slide dry and then lower the slide with the tissue on it into the water bath as evenly as you can. When the water comes onto the slide and under the tissue raise it out of the water immediately. Good Luck!

I was shown a simple trick years ago and have introduced it to many
people since. Simply one single drop of household detergent (not
budget, it doesn't work!) onto the waterbath changes the surface tension
of the water and holds your fatty sections together..

Hope this is helpful! we use it all the time..
