Sounds fine to me. That is what a microtomist would do to make cutting easier. Maybe it is "wrong" to the pathologists, who like things lined up differently and don't care much about how it is to cut.

I have a question regarding "proper embedding"---I have been practicing for 35 yrs., am at new position and funny thing, I do things incorrectly---
Anyway, correct embedding--epithelium from skin - "all going same way" but I embed on a slant not  in a straight row. The knife blade hits one piece at a time not the entire
"straight " line.
Glenda Hoye and the instructors- do you have a reference?
