Dear Gayle,
   I use Sugipath embedding media routinely.  It was highly recommended by
a rep from another company so I had to try it.  I do mix it with it with
Peel-a-way to get more elasticity from it.  I cut a lot of gut and eye
sections and they seem to flatten better that way.  Give it a try.  I still
use paraplast on the processor to use a lower melting point.  I'm sure Russ
would think I'm crazy.

Has anyone used the Surgipath embedding media (part of their two paraffin
system- one for infiltration with less polymer, one for embedding with
poymer) for infiltration.  I am about to embark on this, mainly since
I have extra embedding media, a VIP processor with vacuum/pressure options,
to aid in the infiltration.

I can't think why it wouldn't work, may even improve sectioning.  Maybe
someone from Surgipath will enter discussion.  Any comments!
