[Histonet] Paraffin times; paraffin embedding station

   Not to be the devil's advocate, but in our research lab we routinely put bone specimens in a vacuum oven at 60 degrees overnight or several days to promote better infiltration after processing.  Somewhere I was taught that specimens are not damaged in the paraffin bath as long as the temperature is at 60 degrees, not higher.

    I would like to thank those Histonetters who suggested a Sakura Tissue-Tek embedding station when we

were purchasing such an item.  We have been very satisfied with the unit, and it looks very nice in the lab.
