Hello all,

One of our researchers here has found some cool lesions in rabbit kidneys. 
Now he is asking for 1 micron sections. We of course have only the FFPE 
tissue.  Is it possible to take the paraffin tissue and re-embedd it into 
plastic? What is recommended for future kidney lesions, type of plastic 
etc? Thanks!!
