Re: [Histonet] Drosophila sectioning

From:Rene J Buesa

Start sectioning the block until you get to the are of interest ("face off"). Remove the block and place it "face down" on the softening liquid during 15 minutes. Cool it and try sectioning again.

My question there anything I can do for the 2 dozen
or so blocks that I had already processed and are waiting to be sectioned? These have NOT been processed with softeners but are important specimens.
