Re: soaking blocks

I soak both rat and mouse tissue at least an hour, not more than an hour
and a half.

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.
