What is the best way to avoid having bubbles in mold when embedding
We just use regular melted parrafin in embedding center. What I did is
parraffin in mold, then put in on cold plate to start freezing a bit,
then  put 
the tissue so it will adhere to mold, then put the cassette top on mold,
fill it up with parrafin. I do this step but still see bubbles forming.
I tap  
the cassette top on mold to get rid of bubbles which works, but this
step is 
not  convenience if you have to embed quickly because I have to embed
like 120 
blocks  in hr and half.
Please let me know.
