For the most part you cannot section fat on a cryostat because of the
oilyness (is that a word).  You can fix it and section it?
Good Luck

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?
