Does anyone fix their frozen tissue first in formalin before embedding and
sectioning?  I know one investigator in our lab did that previously, but was not
sure of the strength of formalin (I don't believe it was 10%).  Another
investigator inquired about doing that.

I would appreciate hearing from fellow histonetters.
