Good morning!  My pathologists would like us to cut formalin fixed (not yet processed) tonsil tissue on a cryostat for DIF staining.  Has anyone done this?  I did a quick search that seemed to indicate that it was possible but that the architecture of the cells would be altered because of ice crystals and that it would be difficult to get the sections to stick.  If you have any advice I would greatly appreciate it!
