I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will come along soon, but could it be
freezing artifact? How are you freezing the samples?

Subject: [Histonet] Frozen Spleen w/bubbles

Hello histonetters,

I am cryosectioning unfixed fresh frozen spleens and when they are 
sectioned I can see a billion bubbles under the section.  Can anyone 

1.  What is happening?
2.  How can I avoid them?
3.  Is there a fixation procedure that can help?

The sections are falling off of the slide during staining.
Thank you for your help,
Jo Dee
