I was just wondering how far above the melting point you could safely

Check your paraffin package and it should tell you the melting point of
your paraffin. Robyn

Hi everybody:
Just curious as to what oven temperature is generally used for melting
down paraffin blocks for re-embedding.  Is there a temperature that is
generally considered too high either for the paraffin or for the tissue?
