I think the problem has to do with the embedding process. During embedding the gels are much cooler than the paraffin and as a result, when I initially place the gels into the paraffin, I think a layer of amorphous paraffin forms around the gel. (If you look at the finished paraffin block, the areas surrounding the gel are white paraffin).
My question is this: Is there any way to reform that amorphous region without removing/damaging the gel inside? For instance, could I heat the block up to 60 deg C and try to re-from those regions??
