We embed on a slant here also.Prevents chunking out
of the tissue as well as all the other reasons that have been posted.I
know in Frieda Carson's book,it shows everything embedded in a straight
row,however like the rest of you have already said...Better results cutting when
embedding at an angle!

I agree, it makes cutting so much easier.
This is true for many other tissue types too.

I have a question regarding "proper embedding"---I have been practicing
for 35 yrs., am at new position and funny thing, I do things
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?
