Re: [Histonet] alternates to OCT embedding media
We use Cryomatrix which comes from Shandon (we order it through
Fisher). What is nice about it is you can get it in a gallon jug, which
is good for us because we use it quite a bit (inflate human lung samples
with it) and is a lot chepaer then OCT. If you have empty OCT bottles
you can just refill with Cryomatrix. I think it may come in a smaller
bottle (OCT size). It also used to come in different colours if you
wanted to colour code things. The dye didn't affect any of the
staining we did-washed out in processing of the slides.

same thing. Does anyone know of any other media that is used to prepare
