I have done a few, they were for monitoring the hair growth, so I had
only a small tag of skin. They were fixed in 10% NBF and I ran them in a
same day run. Seemed to work fine for us.

Subject: [Histonet] mouse skin biopsies

Dear Histonetters,

I need to do a skin biopsy on a mouse.  I've never done any skin 
stuff before.  Could someone share a protocol with me on how to do 
this?  (even info on human skin biopsies would be helpful).  Are skin 
biopsies usually formalin fixed and paraffin embedded?  If anyone has 
a protocol or a reference I could look up it would be greatly 

Ignorantly yours,
