[Histonet] Fish Eggs-Help
Who among you have had happy experiences with
fixation/processing/sectioning of unfertilized fish eggs??
A graduate student here at the Vet College is trying to section
paraffin blocks with Arctic char eggs. The eggs are falling apart on
the water bath (or on the way to the waterbath). He only wants to be
able to do H&E on (stepped) serial sections. Any advise? Any at
For insatnce, would frozens be a better option? Is the fixtive choice
important, i.e. are fish eggs like eyes- should he be using Bouins?
I welcome any and all input. Thanks.
