Re: soaking blocks
|From:||Connie McManus <email@example.com>|
you soak your blocks for 10-15 MINUTES???? wow. I work with vet stuff,
too and find that only the livers, spleens and sometimes kidneys (if
there is a lot of blood in them) are about the only tissues I soak. And
I only soak for 10-30 SECONDS. I try to minimize soaking, but for
bloody, friable tissues, it can't be helped.
