Re: [Histonet] Microwave deparaffinization.

From:Rene J Buesa

Paraffin is "transparent" or "translucent" to microwaves, meaning that paraffin CANNOT be melted or even heated using microwaves.
  Instruments using microwaves heat the container (made of or including parts made of WEFLON) that melt the paraffin by convection from the hot container but NOT because the paraffin is directly heated.
  This is one of those good ideas that will not fly!
