RE: soaking blocks

I have often soaked blocks in ice water overnight with no problems at all.
I have heard of mouse tissue popping out of blocks, but have never
experienced that myself.

Subject: soaking blocks
I would like to get some input on the appropriate amount of time to
soak/chill animal tissue before cutting it. In my experience, properly
processed tissue takes a very short amount of time before it is ready to
cut. The lab I am currently working for is recommending soaking blocks
overnight on ice in a refrigerator. I have never heard of this and am
concerned about tissue damage. Thanks for your help.
