Not before embedding in OCT, but we have 10%nbf as our first station in the staining process. The slides stay in there for 1 minute, water rinse, then proceed with your stain as usual.

Subject: Re: [Histonet] Formalin fixed frozen sections
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.
