Hello fellow Techs,

                Has anyone noticed a change in the Henry's Wonder Wax, Enhanced? (Used for embedding, not infiltrating.) We have noticed that it is a lot "stickier" when we are sectioning. (To our picks, forceps, and fingers.) We have checked our temperatures, and all is well. I have asked the company, but they have not replied. 

                Can anyone recommend another embedding paraffin? (We switched from Paraplast Plus about a year ago when we noticed changes after the original manufacturer was bought out.)


Thank you, and have a safe food and family filled Thanksgiving!
