hey Tamara
We bought it.  I have heard that it polmerizes. But we just heated it and it is a retuned to its liquid state. Do you use your on wet or dry sections.

I remain yours truely,

Candice -

Did you purchase this mounting medium or make it yourself? PVA polymerizes and will set up over time; I make mine and store aliquots at -20C, then take one aliquot out to use and keep it at 4C until it is either used up or gets to be too thick. If you made it yourself, did the PVA definitely go into solution?
