I do mouse and hamster and would be happy to help. If you will send me your
processing schedule, reagents used, I will take a look and see if I can pick
up on anything.

Subject: [Histonet] Problems of processing brain for paraffin embedding

Dear Members,
I have problems with paraffin processing of mouse and hamster brains and
spinal cords. I have perfused the animals with PFA 4% and I postfixed them
in the same buffer for 7-8 days and then stored in Alc 70% (up to now).
After sectioning, tissues wrinkle in a way that it is torn after flattenning
(on a slide warmer), therefore the quality is not good at all.
Can anyone give me hints to overcome the problem. A detailted protocol of
paraffin processing would be great.
A.P. Tafreshi
