Can you provide a little more information about your processing, and a
little more detail about how the sections are crumbling (eg, tissue is
disaggregating, or the paraffin section is falling apart, etc)? We regularly
section formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded vascular grafts (ePTFE) at 5-7µm,
and it's working for us. With a little more information, I might be able to
