Hi all

    I was wondering if anyone can send me please the optimal paraffin
processing times for brain autopsy tissue.

    Currently the blocks have cut and stained well but 4-5mm thick tissue
has expanded (bulged out) following cutting as if they had absorbed water.

    Solutions been all changed.
