Re: [Histonet] Animal Tissue processing question

From:Kim Merriam

Hi Jennifer,The NSH publishes an "Animal Processing Manual", I don't think it costs very much ($30 for members) and it lists the processing schedules for many different species; I believe that most of these schedules were submitted by VIR researchers.Here is the link: Kim Merriam, MA, HT(ASCP)Cambridge, MA----- Original Message ----From: "" =0ATo: Histonet@lists.utsouthwestern.eduSent: Wednesday, June 18, 2008 4:13:50 PMSubject: [Histonet] Animal Tissue processing questionDear Histonetters,After doing human histology for 15 years I am excited to have the opportunity to help start up a brand new research histology laboratory. It is a very small lab so I will still have my day job. But it is all new and different and a bit exciting. I would like to ask your help with the processing times. I know animal tissue is dryer so I am thinking less time in alcohol but am looking to those of you out there with the experience for a place to start when it comes to VIP processing times.  I know I will be processing tissues from pigs and primates if that makes a difference. Brand new VIP, brand new embedding center, brand new microtome. . . . I can't tell you how exciting this is. Thanks for all your help.Jennifer_______________________________________________Histonet mailing listHistonet@lists.utsouthwestern.edu
