[Histonet] Technovit 7200VLC

From:"Prior, Andrew"

Dear Histonetters,

I am looking for other people that work with Technovit 7200VLC resin on
large (25x25x4mm) samples. At the moment the infiltration takes 3 days
for each of the graded stages (30-100%) and the final 100% resin step
takes up to 18 days. This is what is recommended by the manufacturers of
the Exakt system we use, but seems rather a long time! We have tried
reducing the times but have ended up with poor section quality.
Unfortunately we cannot reduce the sample size as serial sections have
to be cut.

Does anyone out there have any experience with this resin, and have a
method to reduce the infiltration times? Any suggestions greatly

 Thanks in advance,
