RE: [Histonet] cut the old paraffin block

First try reembedding it.  Sometimes I put glycerine in the ice bath
that helps soften brittle tissue as well.

Subject: [Histonet] cut the old paraffin block

Dear histonetters,
 I was trying to cut the about 3 years old paraffin today but failed. I
keep all my paraffin blocks in file drawer at room temperature. I tried
to cut the sample after it was put on ice water for 1hr, 3 hr and even 5
hrs but still feel dry. 
Anybody know why I cannot make it? Any suggestion would be highly
