Re: Nail by paraffin section?

From:Melissa Jans

We routinely do a PAS stain for fungus on toenails with good staining results.  However, you may find that the most difficult problem you will run into is getting the section to stay on the slide.  We have found that slides coated with APES solution works best, with Stay-On in your waterbath.  Good Luck!!
