RE: [Histonet] fatty tissue processing

From:"Rogerson Kemlo (ELHT) Pathology"

This question is a regular; I don't have a protocol as I am a Manager/
Cytologist but from memory fatty tissues are best cut thin, well fixed,
dehydrated and then put into a clearing agent/ degreasant. After the fat
has been 'removed' return to dyhydration, then 'clear' again and
impregnate with wax. You can use many degreasants but I used xylene, Mr.
Lillie 'waxes' eloquently about such matters.

We are currently in the process of setting up a processor specifically
processing fatty tissues. I would really like to get people's protocols
processing fatty tissues that have worked well for them.  Thank you,
