I find that the type of tissue as well as the type of paraffin makes a big
difference in the temperature I use.  The melting point of the paraffin
should be considered when making this decision.

What is the optimal floating bath temperature to use when paraffin
sectioning a block of tumor tissue embedded in standard paraffin?

Thanks for any info you can provide!
