Cartilage does separate from the rest of the tissue very easily, you may
need to process in GMA, even in GMA it can be a problem.  I had to make
elmers glue coated slides (dip in a 5% solution in dih20, then airdry slides
overnight before using them to pick up sentions) dry the sections flat at
37dc overnight.

Subject: [Histonet] formalin fixed mouse ears-help

Hi there,


I'm having problems with 10% neutral buffered formalin fixed mouse ears
embedded in paraffin. They are splitting from the cartilage as soon, and
I mean, as soon as they hit the water bath.


I'm open to any suggestions, no matter how silly or simple. This is a
chronic problem and these mouse ears will continue to be submitted to me
for a long time.


Please help!
