Dear Bruce,

wrong. I've also tried Acetone fixation (10 min.@ RT) with the same result??????????? I look forward to your replies & THANKYOU in advance.........S>

I would suggest that after sectioning, try immediate fixation (& 
storage) in methanol or Schoobridge fixative (5ml formalin in 35ml 
absolute ethanol) prior to H&E staining.
