From:"S Ladd"

Why do you want to thaw it if you are putting it in OCT and cryosectioning??

Hello Netters,
I have a question that came from an investigator at my institute:

Can mouse brain that has been snap frozen in liquid nitrogen (stored 
at -80 C degrees) be thawed and embedded in OCT for cryosectioning 
without causing excessive damage?  How can this be done?

I appreciate all of your answers and thank you all in advance.

Take care,
Jo Dee
