Try running a wooden dowel (stick) lightly across your blade, dulling it slightly.  Disposable blades can actually be too sharp sometimes.

Subject: [Histonet] Rolling of my ribbon ? Another paraffin question.

*I am presently using a paraffin designated as an IM product.*
*We are a facility that cuts only autopsies and have been experiencing alot
of rolling of our sections.*
*We did recently switch to this product, because of cost.*

*Question :  Is the paraffin you are using working well on autopsy tissue
and producing ribbons right away ? Do you use it for infiltration as well
as embedding ?*

*Thank you for your assistant.*
