RE: [Histonet] hair shaft and hair bulb procedures

From:"Joe Nocito"

funny you should ask. I've been pulling my hair out (no pun intended) trying to get these things oriented. My dermpath was impressed with our last attempt.
	We use Histogel by Richard Allen to orient the hairs and process as usual. Since the orientation is performed at the grossing table, all the embedders have to do is put the hair enbedded in Histogel right into a paraffin block. We cut three levels and perforn a PAS/Fungus on each level. Hope this helps. I have hair growing back now.

Fellow Techs,
Does anyone have procedures for microscopic hair shaft evaluation and microscopic hair bulb evaluation they are willing to share? Also, what do you use for controls?
