Re: [Histonet] Re: nuclear bubble artifact
We created nuclear bubble artifact by flattening a just picked up section
(from waterbath) on a really hot surface or hot plate. One person just
addressed this today by saying too hot a waterbath contributes to this
also. We quit flattening the section on a hot plate, and simply drained
the slide, then went to a lower heat incubator - 60C is probably adequate
for a short time or until paraffin is melted.
