Oil Red O lipid staining

From:Jaclynn Lett <jlett@cid.wustl.edu>

Has anyone used Oil Red O to stain lipids in tissues embedded in plastics
(Epon or Epon-Araldite)?  If so, has this been done by staining en bloc or
by staining the sections.  Sections would range from 1-4 microns in

We would also consider tissues embedded in glycol methacrylate.  We'd like
to avoid frozen sections because we'd prefer the higher level of detail
possible with plastic.

Thank you,
