Hi Histonetters,
Thank you for all the replies, I am following some leads as we e-mail.

To Karen and Marianne, it is not such a dumb question as we too are in
research and only found out about Histogel through the Net about a year
ago.  Histogel is simular to agar, we were given some samples to try.  The
Hospital Cytology lab is VERY keen to get their hands on some more and we
could not find a supplier down under.
