     It's always great to try this kind of stuff and see what we can do. But
when it comes down to really needing to get it done right and have it
looking REALLY good, there is no better place to send it than to Damien
Laudier. He is truly talented histologist, entomologist and artist. Take a
look at his website and you 'll see what I mean.

Have a great evening,

Hi all:

Does anyone has the proper procedures to obtain cryostat and/or paraffin
sections of beetles head?. I have not been succesful at obtaining one. My
samples cut well but during collection from the cryotome it tends to curl so
tend to loose the brain tissue. Additionally, is there any place that I can
my beetles head samples to be sectioned? This is to do basic brain
I would really appreciate all possible feedback and pointing me to the right
references if possible.
