soaking blocks

From:Rick Haverland <>

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.
