Dear Histonet:
Second message from me today, but different subject. I am staining
sections (approx. 1 cm thick) of human brains, taken from the cadavers
that were used by the first year medical students. I am staining them
with Prussian Blue for use in the medical student neuroanatomy teaching
labs. I am thinking of trying to do some fancier staining and our own,
in house, plastination of the sections after staining. However, there
are lots of methodological questions that come up, both in the staining
and in the plastination.  I have a fairly limited budget for this, hence
the home plastination. If anyone has experience with this, would you be
so kind as to email me separately so that we could have a discussion
about this?
