If you can stain the material by normal staining methods you should be able
to use methylmethacrylate.  It can be removed the same way paraffin is with
organic solvents or acetone.  Glycolmethacrylate can not be removed without
destroying the section and most other materials embedded in it.  Pam Marcum

Dear HistoNeters
Does anyone knows if you can stain polyglycolic or polylactic acid devices
embedded in methylmethacrylate?
To my knowledge this is not possible.
Thanks in advance if someone knows and tells me!
