RE: Nail by paraffin section?

From:Mike Konopka

Muhammad, you can use any routine fungal stain, we use PAS, you have
trouble keeping the section on even with PAS let along a silver
technique. We coat our slides with 'Aquadhere' which is a wood glue,
this works in the majority of cases.
PS soften the nail prior to cutting with whichever method you like prior
to cutting.
