RE: [Histonet] tissue swelling out of block

From:"Rosa Fields"

The major problem in a veterinary histo lab is generally 1 processor to process all types of tissues and species.  The lab I can from had this problem; you can only optimize the schedule if you limit your tissues.  
Some are under, some are over; and a small percentage are just right.

Subject: [Histonet] tissue swelling out of block

Hi all,

a friend recently got a job in a veterinary histo and has some troubles in cutting. He tells about paraffinblocks, where the tissue is swelling out while warming like a small hill.  I referred to the possibilty of taking up humidity that causes swelling. 

Do you know other causes for this problem?


Thanks in advance
