On fatty tissue, especially cheeks. After we mount on a slide we spray the tissue with liquid nitrogen and let sit to freeze before embedding for a couple of minutes.  Than after embedding spray the chuck again with liquid nitrogen.  On really fatty stuff you may have to freeze before cutting each time. Time consuming yes.  But I find freezing and let sitting I don't fight with it as much when cutting.  Anne

Hello I perform mohs cutting a few days a week and I noticed that on fatty skin tissue I don't get the interior of the skin section. I only seem to get the epidermis. Is there a trick to getting the fatty tissue too. I tried bumping up the microns but that only helped a bit.
Thanks for your responses.
