Bruce, Maybe you will have to fix the plant in formalin first to stop
all natural processes such as gas formation. Good luck, Tom T. USDA

Dear Histonetters,

We have  done the Oil Red O Charukian Method and Oil Red O technique
from Bancroft & Stevens, 3rd edition - both worked beautifully. Also
did Toluidine Blue stain combo with the Oil Red O & by itself - all
stunning results. Did the stains on cryo  -sections of a native
Australian plant to demonstrate that the 'grainy' bits on the
underside of the leaves were full of Lipids/fats.
  The PROBLEM we have encountered, is -  no matter what Aqueous
Mountant we try , our cryosections are covered in microscopic air
bubbles (have tried to date: BDH/ Aquamount; DAKO /Faramount &
Glycergel & Ultramount.....even plain ol' Glycerol, (coverslipping
from DH20/Deionized H20/Tap H2O/Hot H2O/air dried - no H20).......
ALL resulted with same problem.
Can someone PLEASE advise what we are doing wrong (???) OR suggest a
possible answer as we need these results to be photographed ASAP.
Cheers & THANKS in advance,

Bruce in Melbourne/OZ
