Hi Fellow Histonetters, we have started having this problem with our G.I. biopsies, and not all of them, just the odd one here and there.  After staining, when looking at it on the scope, you can't get it to focus in one plane.  It's not cutting artifact, because we have recut the block making sure it is well cooled etc. before picking up and staining the section.  The cells, when in focus, look fixed and properly processed, and the staining is the way it should be.  I have no idea what is causing this artifact.  Has anyone else seen this and can shed some light on what is causing it?
