Is it easier to get MMA sections of undecalcified bone than trying to
section them in a cryostat?  Or is it morphology that you are trying to

Regarding immuno on plastic embedded tissue, I wanted to wait until others
have had their say.  As I have said before on Histonet, IHC & ISH on GMA
(including ImmunoBed and other plastics) is possible, but in practice I
find the use of MMA best and certainly the most suitable for diagnostic
routine use.  I have written several papers which I think Pam Marcum at
Polysciences has copies, and a Histopathology Tech Sample exercise, HT-6
(99), that may prove useful.

I have used Technovit 9100 (mentioned by Gayle Callis) a few years ago, but
preferred our own procedures.

Unfortunately, I am unable to go to the NSH meeting in October later this
year to speak on this topic.  Should you require further info, please email
