We never sealed the blocks and never had any problems. One thing is, that in
the storage boxes, the blocks sit so tight, that they probably seal one

Betreff: [Histonet] question about coating blocks with paraffin for storage

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.
