I need to get some input on cutting animal tissue. I have always worked in  a 
clinical setting and have recently moved into a research lab. I find that the 
 tissue is very brittle and needs to be iced for an extremely amount of time. 
Can  any of you animal cutting histo techs please give me some advice on what 
type of  paraffin you are using and what processing schedule you are using. I 
have  recently changed to Richard Allen type 9 paraffin and it seems to have 
helped  some. I would appreciate any advice you can give me.
