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...
