The tissue in plastic will be rabbit femurs I believe.  We haven't started anything yet, just getting references.  As to the paraffin staining, I believe that was an overall question from my director to see if she could incorporate that stain in paraffin as well as our Technovit 7200 work.

What is the tissue? What are your endpoints?

> Hello, I posted earlier regarding the Sanderson's Rapid Bone stain. I forgot to mention that I will be using this stain on 75-100 micron thick ground sections embedded in Technovit 7200 plastic. 
> I am also wondering about paraffin staining using this stain.
> Here's one response so far:
> "I've used Sanderson's on plastic sections a lot in the past, works well. Recently I tried it on rat tibias, decaled, FFPE. Very disappointing. They look like Toluidine blue-- all shades of blue & nothing else. Now I just stick with von kossa and/or tetrachrome for those.
