Hi all,

after more than a decade of NOT cutting frozen sections, I find myself
back at the ice-face.
To get my hand in (not literally) I thought I would do some trial
sections on stored tissue - stuff that was in formalin and now in 70%

Horror ; dismay. The tissue, once frozen, is all mushy in the middle.
Is this because of teh long storage?

is there anything I can do to improve the situation?

much appreciated
