Re: [Histonet] Frozen sections

If your cryostat is set up to defrost at night it would be a very bad
idea to leave the tissue in the cryostat.

  I was wondering about a policy for the length of time a frozen
block can safely remain in a cryostat before it is taken out and
processed.  I have a pathologist that wants to leave the frozen tissue
in the cryostat for up to 3 days in case he wants to do immuno stains
it.  I would be interested to here of other policys from other
regarding this issue.

Thank you,
