RE: [Histonet] Fatty unfixed tissues?
|From:||"Christine Tambasco" |
We reprocess fatty or unfixed tissue. Simply melt block down, put in a
new cassette and immerse in histoclear, xylene, formula 83 or whatever
substitute you may be using for about 2 hours. Then just put it back
in formalin and reprocess with the next batch of tissue. It will be
delayed 1 day, but it generally cuts and stains much better. Good
