The Art of Embedding Tissue for Frozen Section
This article describes a system used for embedding of tissues for the preparation of frozen sections.
This novel system uses simple techniques and apparatus to accomplish face-down embedding in freezing-temperature steel wells.
The system is easy to learn and offers many advantages over conventional methods, including speed, high precision and predictability, and reduced tissue wastage.
The system is easily adapted in most existing cryostats, used no additional consumables, and requires minimal maintenance. (The J Histotechnol 26:11, 2003)
