Has anyone experience of cryostat sectioning of fat tissue? This would
be rodent fat pads, particularly the gonadal fat pad which usually
consists largely of adipocytes.


What temperature would you cut at? Is there anything that could be used
to infiltrate the tissue prior to sectioning to provide more support?
