Re: [BULK] - [Histonet] Working with toenails

From:"Fred Underwood"

Hi Fran,

I use it for all tissues.  Some samples I limit the exposure, for
example neural tissue.  Don't be tempted to make a stronger (5% and
greater) solution.  Results are less than satisfactory.  It does help
though on hard or bloody tissue.

Do you use the fabric softener 'brick' for all of your tissues, or just
nails?

Liquid fabric softener works well.  My ice tray is actually a frozen
block of 0.2% fabric softener.  I have mentioned this before, but I
have
found titebond (a commercial wood glue, use a 5% solution) is the
"bomb"
for adhering hard tissues to slides.

Hey everyone,
short story first. When I was in high school, I was a running back in
football (American football, not soccer). I quit because the middle
line
backers and defensive ends were twice my size and I was getting
killed.
	Stay with me just a bit longer. I promise this will be worth
it.
	I didn't realize that I could have been a place kicker or a
punter. I could
have been known as "Joe the Toe".
Now, we are becoming the south Texas lab known for toenails, but we
are
having a problem with them staying on. We also perform a PAS/Fungus.
We
have
tried Nair and ammonia water, but we are still having problems. Our
sales
manager is going to all the podiatrists in town and we are getting
inundated
with toenails. Can anyone give me some suggestions?
	This isn't what I had in mind when I said I wanted to be known
as "Joe the
Toe".
	thanks in advance.
