I found an excellent way to reprocess tissue that does not seem to harm it
at all.  Melt the block/tissue down, put the tissue back in the cassette and
put the cassette lid back on.  Through the block back into paraffin and
reprocess.  No need to remove the paraffin from the tissue.  This process is
used often in our lab and works out extremely well without harming the

Subject: [Histonet] Reprocessing?

Hi all,
  One of the technicians in the lab is experiencing a problem.  He has
processed the spleen of a rat and is encountering sectioning problems - good
paraffin ribbons but without the tissue, just the outline of where the
tissue should be.
  Is it possible for him to reverse the processing procedure, re-process?
Will the tissue be able to withstand it?
  Thanks much
