Pathologists use various stains to help make their diagnoses. One of the categories of stains is called special stains and refers to a technique where dyes or chemicals are used to identify specific cell structures or components present within the submitted sample. The pathologist can use these particular special stains to confirm or categorize the potential diagnoses.

Connective tissue plays an essential role in the human body by holding together, protecting, supporting, and joining organs to tissues. This editorial describes the categories of connective tissue, the types of connective tissue diseases, and the diagnosis of connective tissue diseases.

This article is for those organizations that need or want to perform remote primary diagnosis from a home office or different location; Dr. Eric Glassy and Dr. Matthew Hanna give critical insights on what it takes to be successful.

Precision and personalized medicine are terms used interchangeably. This approach is advancing rapidly and will change the way clinicians are practicing medicine. 

La sostenibilidad en el laboratorio de histología da forma a los paradigmas de cuatro formas fundamentales: minimizando nuestro impacto en la Tierra, manteniendo nuestro bienestar, reduciendo el coste de la gestión de residuos en el laboratorio y descubriendo nuevos procesos que afecten a nuestro trabajo diario.

Current technology allows tumors to be painted with multiple colors, termed multiplex staining. Multiplex staining today used in research, may also assist with cancer diagnoses clinically via: preservation of tissue, improved diagnostic accuracy, and enhanced diagnostic insight.

During the pandemic in which pathologists around the world have remained at home or reduced their time in the lab to avoid unnecessary exposure, digital pathology has offered a ray of hope, allowing them to continue to perform their duties remotely.
