From:"DiCarlo, Margaret"


I work in an orthopedics bone lab and am trying different paraffins to
infiltrate and embed in to be able to cut good sections.   I am currently
using Fisher' paraplast x-tra.  I tried using Richard-Allan's Type 9 and I
am having problems.  I manually  process  large pieces of bone that are
about 5 mm. in thickness and fit on a 5" x 7'' slide. I should mention I
clear with xylene.  Can anyone recommend a paraffin  that would make cutting
bone sections easier?  

I would appreciate your help.
