[Histonet] cryosectioning rat bone

From:John Baker

Hi All,   Does anyone out there in histoland get good cryo-sections of 
rat femur or tibia?  I get great 5-7 micron sections of mouse bone 
using the CryoJane Tape System.  Whether longitudinal or cross the 
cortical bone will not laminate and comes off with the window.  I 
certainly don't get sections at all using the anti-roll plate.  I have 
a Hacker-Bright OTF cryostat and use t-c blades.  Any suggestions are 
greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.  John
