Hi all,

I need to remove the methacrylate surrounding some bone samples (I was
told that a 50:50 solution of xylene and chloroform would do the trick).
The problem is that I want to re-embed the samples in LR White once the
methacrylate has been removed. Does anyone have any experience in this
or knows if it is possible? I need to cut 10 micron thick cross-sections
of mouse tibiae and these have failed to adequately infiltrate with
methacrylate. With LR White being less viscous I was hoping that it
would infiltrate better.
