To all:  I have a client that we are attempting to stain H & E / as well as
immuno on FFPE mouse skin with matrigel plugs.  These things section like a
dream and then when we attempt to stain only the matrigel part of the sample
is falling off.  Does anyone have any tricks with this stuff they would be
willing to share?  We are using charged slides and cutting at 5-6 microns
per the client.  Thanks -
