You have to assure a perfect infiltration. Cartilage needs that. Also you will have to "play" with sectioning speed, type of blade (knife) and sectioning angle.

I am sectioning ferret lungs and am having problems with tearing and lines because the bronchioles and blood vessels are so thick , similar to trachea.  Has anyone sectioned these animals and can give suggestions on soaking or anything that will help get a smooth section.
