I believe that the higher temperature is needed to evaporate off the isopropanol.
Just make sure that your tissue is well fixed.

Hi there,
On an Instrumentation course at keiser, we had a discussion about the right temperature fro the paraffin when the proceesing is done using microwaves. Can some tell me what should be the ideal temperature with out damaging the processing. The text book mentions 84 degrees, but isn't this to high; perhaps if the time is less, it wont affect it?
