How long is the limited lifespan?  We make and store hundreds at a time (4C) - we usually use them up in 4 months or so.  What's your experience on lifespan?  I've never notice a problem for bone sectioning.

                I do not know if chrome alum -gelatine slides are
commercially available, but you should be aware that thgese have a limited
life span. We used to prepare several thousand of these slides and while
initially an onerous task, once the set up was made it was a routine thing.
Have you considered alternates?
