Here's a query from Janet that she couldn't get to post to the list.
Please respond to the list so she'll see the response. Thanks.
I would like to poll the group regarding routine practices for thickness of
paraffin sections. I am particularly interested in brain, spinal cord, lymph
node, tonsil, and renal biopsy 
Most references range from 3-6 um for routine tissues with 4-5um being most
prevalent. What do you use? Which tissues do you cut at a different thickness
I am not referring to special stains as the protocol would prescribe the
Thanks for your help.
