Re: [Histonet] tissue microarray problem

From:"Jacqueline Miller"

Thanks.  I've tried moving the handle back and forth, but that seems to
make it worse.  I'll have to look into tamping the stylus.  I worry
about compressing the tissue, but that's what practice is for.  

Thanks again,

Move the handle back and forth a couple of times and then gently Tamp
on top of the stylus. these two steps have always take care of any
resistant core removal.

Hi everyone,

I'm making several practice tissue microarrays, and I'm having a lot
problem with not being able to retrieve the donor core.  In other
after I punch the donor block, the core does not stay in the needle as
the needle is withdrawn.  Instead, the core remains in the block and
only way to get it out is to pry it out, which ruins the surrounding
tissue.  I appreciate any tips that anyone can offer as to how to
retrieve the core when this happens, or better yet, how to keep this
from happening in the first place.
