Hello Galina and histonetters,

I also tried to do histology on transwell inserts by Costar.
I also followed the protocol but it did not work for me.
The problem is that the paraffin does not stick to the membrane. What I got
when I removed the membrane plug was that the membrane got separated from
the paraffin. My cells are now partially on the membrane and partially in
the paraffin plug.

Has anyone got some ideas about how to embed such a transwell insert without
destroying my cells?
