[Histonet] restoring dried tissue

From:"Julienne Rutherford"

I work with marmoset monkeys. I have some dried placental tissue - nobody to
observe the birth and collect the placenta, so tissue dried out overnight.
Is there a way rehydrate dried tissue prior to fixation in formalin, or
should I just write it off? I also have some tissue that was collected some
years ago that was found in the same opportunistic way, dessicated but
placed in formalin as is. Placenta jerky. What can be done with tissue like
this? I'm planning to do H & E on my placental samples and am interested in
doing IHC for IGF.
