Tissue processing consists of dehydration, clearing, and infiltration. Here, experts share their recommendations for properly executing these steps.
Techniques to Minimize Articular Cartilage Folding
After a joint has been decalcified, the loss of proteoglycans in the articular cartilage causes it to fold and ripple during the staining process. When this occurs, it makes it impossible to perform histo-morphometry or measurements of the cartilage.

The Cost of Reprocessing
One of the most fundamentally critical elements of diagnostic histopathology is first the ability to suspend all cellular activity in tissue and prevent degradation, and secondly to process that specimen in a manner that facilitates subsequent steps such as...
Benefits of Implementing a Specimen Tracking System (STS) in Anatomic Pathology
Anatomic pathology has historically relied on manual systems of tracking and data collection. Bar coding and tracking can be used to capture and manage data as well as help histology create standard work in its processes.
