We used to so something similar (for flow cytometry) on whole prostate large specimens.
First we selected (from the stained slide) the area we wanted. From that are we took a "core" biosy, reembedded it and section at 200 µm steps.
Those thick slices were treated with xylene (and hydrated to saline solution) to eliminate the paraffin. Later they were disintegrated by shaking them in saline solution until the components were dislogged.
That was the material used for flow cytometry and the results were good.
Hope this will help you!

I am looking for a good protocol for extracting nuclei from paraffin slides.
The nuclei suspension should serve for FISH-testing on lymphoma-material.
Perhaps someone could share his/her protocol with me.
Thanks in advance
