RE: [Histonet] What product used for orientating tissue prior to embedding?

From:Rene J Buesa

As an alternative I have used melted agar. Works very well and is cheaper.

Subject: [Histonet] What product used for orientating tissue prior

Does anyone know what material or product is used to orientate tissues (skin and such) prior to processing? It's like a gel or something and it can be embedded with the tissues and it cuts nicely. Does anyone know what that stuff is? I think I have seen it in a pink color or probably blue...

Thanks all,
