An Introduction to Specimen Processing
Most fresh tissue is very delicate and easily distorted and damaged, and it is thus impossible to prepare thin sections from it unless it is chemically preserved or “fixed” and supported in some way whilst it is being cut. Broadly there are two strategies that can be employed to provide this support...
H&E Staining Overview: A Guide to Best Practices
For routine diagnosis, the use of Hematoxylin and Eosin (H&E) is by far preferred for viewing cellular and tissue structure detail by pathologists. The variation of stain intensity is often driven by the pathologist’s learning experience and personal preference...
An Introduction to Routine and Special Staining
Routine H&E staining and special stains play a critical role in tissue-based diagnosis or research. By colouring otherwise transparent tissue sections, these stains allow highly trained pathologists and researchers to view, under a microscope, tissue morphology (structure)...
