RE: [Histonet] curious about soaking paraffin blocks.

From:"Kaliko, Bonnie"

Since we process every organ of rat, mouse, dog, rabbit and monkey on
many animals, processing by hand would be archaic.  The amount of time
each species is processed depends on the tissue size. Mouse having the
shortest processing schedule.  Monkey is the easiest to section because
it is so close to human tissue.  All tissue is fully fixed in 10% NBF
before processing.

I tended to process until they were processed; some tissue took longer
than others the secret was when they looked clear in xylene. If they
weren't see through I went back to alcohol; obviously NOT an automatic
processing procedure.
