         We do lots of embedding of polymers and have found it depends 
entirely on the polymer.  Some are light, heat, and chemically 
reactive.  Then you have to play "Merlin-the-Magician"!  Seriously, are you 
sectioning beads, scaffolds or gels?  I have a PowerPoint handout I can 
send you if you would be interested?
