     When you say she wants to look at Purkinje cells, what is she
     for? A simple Cresyl violet or thionin stain will show the purkinje

     cells in the cerebellum beautifully and may be sufficient for her 
     needs. Certainly can be performed on frozen sections

I am not sure how the morphology will be but this might be worth a try. 
Place the OCT encased specimen in NBF and process. May be adequate for
the PI wants to see.

Fellow techs,
I have a PI who wants to look at Purkinje cells in mouse brains. I am
use to 
doing silver stains on ffpe tissue however she has some tissue frozen in
via liquid nitrogen. Any suggestions other than having her harvest some 
tissue for ffpe ?
