A few weeks ago I asked on Histonet for suggestions on processing and
sectioning insects - cockroaches and mosquito GI tracts. After many
emails and quite a few phone calls and some further research I was
able to get very excellent sections of both and impress the crap out
of the customers. ;-)
Many thanks to Gayle Callis, Bob Skinner, Barry Rittman, Pam Marcum
and Brian Hewlett for all your help and to those who emailed about
their experiences with Mollifex and Histogel. Couldn't have pulled
this off with out all of you.
For the record I have made copious notes so anybody faced with insect
processing should feel free to contact me for protocols.
Now if anybody has a copy of Barbosa's Manual of Basic Techniques in
Insect Histology that they would like to part with pleeeeeze let me
know. The book is out of print and I have been borrowing it from the
Univ of New Mexico library.
