processing paraffins
« on: April 14, 2005, 12:08:12 PM »
Good afternoon,
I have just been hire to assist a research facility set up a small histo lab.  Most of there histo work will be routine. They however do plan to do some IHC, especially "endothelial cell" RECA-1.  Is there any specific infiltarating paraffin more recommended then others?  What about Paraplast- X-tra with a lower melting point 50-54.  Any other recommendations would be appreciated, since most of my years as a HT has been routine.

Steven
