I am wondering how much agitation is required in order to
achieve the clearing of paraffin from the tissue and slide.
IHC systems obviously use adhesive or + slides, aiding in
tissue adherence. Too much agitation might take take tissue
off. And what about nail fragments or hard tissues in
general? Will they survive? I have an article and info
regarding this type of deparaffinization and will try to get
it into an e-mail.
My sense is that it could very well be less efficient and
time consuming and that depending on how it is done, could
yield very different results.
I still think that "there's nothing like xylene!!!" But
obviously soap and water doesnt hurt your liver....
Interesting method I would like to hear more about people's
