What is Tissue Processing?
Once tissue is properly fixed it goes through a process which involves dehydration, clearing and infiltration. Tissue processing is routinely done on an instrument called a tissue processor.
The download titled "Science of Tissue Processing" describes the steps required to take animal or human tissue from fixation to the state of complete infiltration with a histological paraffin. Subsequently, the processed tissue is made into a paraffin block so it can be sectioned on the microtome.
