angel (called declination).
We embed straight, because areas of same concistancy should be positioned in
one line and in the cutting direction.
Areas of more rigidity compress the smoother ones, if they are shifted in an

If you have problems with the orientation of the tissue in the block, just
turn the blockholder.

> Need some info on the correct orientation of skin tissue. Punch/ ellipse.
Does anyone have a literature on this topic. I am used to embed large skin
in an angle, the skin being on top. 
> Currently the place where I work have different protocol, the skin is
embedded straight, the epidermis being right angled to the mold.
> I find the section difficult to cut when the skin is embedded straight ,
the section are compressed and more chances scoring along the section.
