[Histonet] FFPE mouse tissue problem

From:"Judy Strauss"

Good Morning,

For the first time I find myself working with decalcified mouse tissue and
all is not well.  Bone is fine but the muscle tissue in the block is
"crispy" and shreds when sectioned.  I do not know if the tissue is
over/under fixed or over/under processed.  I would like to know why mouse
tissue behaves so differently from rat.  I would appreciate a protocol
(along with helpful hints) for embedding decalcified mouse hind limbs in

Thanks in advance,
