Thanks for your response. Well, the blocks are already being used and the collection hasn't even been fully compiled yet, so I guess we can say the work has a purpose.
My first idea was also to run random tests, however, I'm not a histologist but an administrator. Scientists who have used the blocks insist that the blocks are still usable, even if it's not as good as a fresh sample - they say it depends on the how good the antibody used is and which question is being asked. So I will go with their judgement.
Can I ask why you consider fumigation to be the best option?
