I have done several yrs of work on Eisenia fetida worms with a PhD student.
I decided to do a std Pwax processing schedule.
The student dissected the appropriate area then placed in 10% Formalin in PBS pH7.4 for 24hrs on a rocker ( gentle agitation)
I then processed to Pwax using a std IMS/Xylene/wax on a Leica carousel ( 1hr in each station)
Could do tinctorial and IHC no problem.
Sure, many primary Abs didn't work.......
We also did TUNEL on them Pwax sections....worked a treat.
I may have TUNEL images in the Histonet Image archive.
NB: Sure, maybe freezing is a better way forwards. Depends.
All I know is that the PhD student passed with no problems and went on to a so far succesful career in Science Industry
