Science of Tissue Processing
Download this training resource to learn more about tissue processing and the steps required to take animal or human tissue from fixation to the state of complete infiltration with a histological paraffin.
What is Tissue Processing?
Once tissue is properly fixed it goes through a process which involves dehydration, clearing and infiltration. Tissue processing is routinely done on an instrument called a tissue processor.
The download titled "Science of Tissue Processing" describes the steps required to take animal or human tissue from fixation to the state of complete infiltration with a histological paraffin. Subsequently, the processed tissue is made into a paraffin block so it can be sectioned on the microtome.
