Hi All,
Is anyone else having problems with Tissue Prep paraffin they have received
in the past two weeks?  Our sections are "exploding" in a way similar to
blocks that are comtaminated with xylene. As a test we tried cutting some
plain paraffin blocks (no tissue) and saw the same problem. Lowering the
waterbath temp. helps only a bit.
Any ideas??
What other paraffin brands are people using?

Thanks, Joyce
