[Histonet] Cell block preparation for paraffin embedding

From:"Connolly, Brett M"


Would someone be willing to share their procedure for preparing cell blocks
(from cell cultures) for processing to paraffin blocks.  I haven't done this
in ages...do you still use gelatin? What do you use to keep the cells in the
cassettes?  A colleague needs some guidance pretty much from square one.

Thanks, Brett
