Trim the excess OCT and place it in NBF (to complete thawing). Leave in NBF as usual.

  Hi everyone.

We have some extra ovarian tumour samples frozen in OCT that we would
like to transfer to formalin so that we can then process and use as part
of a TMA. I'm just wondering if there are any special protocols that
should be followed or if we're ok with just trimming off excess OCT then
rinsing in NBF and fixing O/N in NBF?
