>I am looking for a good technique for  fixing and wax embeding nematodes. 
The nematodes will not be 
>whole, only front ends, which should aid the embedding process.
Fixattion: Berland's fluid or v. hot alcohol for live worms; storage in 
70-80% alcohol.

For wax-embedding see:

parasites, with details of the materials and facilites required. Systematic 
Parasitolgy 12: 211-229.
