Dear Histonetters,

My lab does IHC on FFPE mouse brain and other tissues.  We would like 
to store our tissue blocks and unstained slides so we can use them in 
the future.  Is there any limit on the length of time that tissue 
blocks and unstained slides can be stored and is it ok to just store 
them in air at room temperature or is there some other way we should 
store them?  Thanks in advance for any advice.
