Would this work for nose bone for a frozen section?

This is a job for "Joe the Toe", hold on while I get my cape on.
OK, I'm back. Try soaking the block in 10% sodium hydroxide for about
minutes, then put it back on ice.
May I suggest that you soak you toenails in 10% sodium hydroxide before
processing? I leave my blocks in the solution for about an hour,
a water rinse before they go on the processor. We had a melanoma from a
thumb on a 21 year old that we had to perform immunos on. First time I
melanoma from a 21 year old and in a nail. The 10% NaOH did a really
job and we were able to get really nice sections. Hope this helps.
