For tissue morphology:
- Fix tissue in appropriate fixative for paraffin embedded
- After fixation, tissue should be stored in 70% ETOH, except for
brain, spinal cord or any fatty/lipid-rich organ, which should be
stored in PBS at 4C.
- Check the specifications for the antibodies you will be using
and request the appropriate type of embedding.
- If you are bringing your frozen tissue in pre-made blocks, be
sure to embed all the sections in the same orientation, and let us
know in which plane you want them sectioned.
If you are beginning a new project, we would be glad for you to
come speak with us about any specifics before you collect any
tissue, so that you will not waste any of your time or animals by
making avoidable mistakes.
