In generell I would suggest to store the sections in wax at 4°C (not
below 4°C, otherwise the wax may become brittle). Dewax the sections
just prior to in situ hybridization. I have no idea how long you can
store sections in this way. However, I used sections which have been
stored for three months at 4°C without any problem.
Good luck! Juergen
