Hello histonetters,

I joined the list about 2 months ago but haven't posted anything before. I
am an immunologist trying to get acquainted with histotechnology. Presently,
I am dealing with frozen sectioning of mouse muscle specimens and  am not
entirely satisfied with the results: 1) the fibers separate from each other
so that there is large empty spaces between them(probably due to inadequate
freezing); 2) some of the fibers will appear longitudinal while others
rounded (orientation of the specimen?);3)when immunostaining, the edges of
the muscle section as well as its collagen are stained after addition of
 Would very much appreciate advice on how to improve my technique.
