Has anybody done histology on Puramatrix gels?
I am trying to do some histology on cell cultures grown on collagen and
Puramatrix gels. The collagen is no problem, but the Puramatrix ix extremely
fragile - even changing the culture medium can damage it!  
I am going to try cryosectioning next week when I get some more gels, but am
not hopeful.
Any suggestions (not "use another scaffold gel") will be gratefully

Many thanks
