Have a tried keeping them on a WET ice for 45 minutes to an hour?  If
you have tried it and it doesn't work, it is a processing problem that
you must rectify.

Subject: [Histonet] Mouse liver tissue processing

Hi everyone
We are having a real serious problem getting good sections from mouse
livers.  The tissue curls and shreds out of the block as soon as it
comes in
contact with the knife, end up with a section that has the exact outline
the tissue but no tissue. The tissue consistency could best be described
"dry?" Interestingly, it is only the normal livers that have this
We have tried sectioning thick, thin, no soak, cold soak......but out of
ideas. Anyone have any suggestions? Unfortunately we have no control
the tissue processing, but perhaps can convince to change.
Thanks Luis

Happy Holidays to all!!
