Dear Fellow Histotechs:


We have always "dipped" out blocks after cutting them before we file
them, so I'm inquiring if any of you do not "dip" or recoat with
paraffin, have you had any problems with your blocks?  Someone said the
tissue would shrink & bugs would get into them???  Thanks for your help
in this matter.
