Tips & Tricks to Better Histology in Tissue-Based Research (Part 2): A Review of Factors Influencing the Quality of Sections

A 2-PART WEBINAR SERIES DEDICATED TO MITIGATING COMMON ISSUES AT EACH STEP OF THE HISTOLOGY PROCESS. In this 2-part live webinar series, Fiona Tarbet discussed how to avoid common pitfalls at each stage of the histology process. With over 37 years of experience, Fiona was invited for 3 consecutive years to give this talk at NSH (National Society for Histotechnology) as part of a 4-hour workshop. For the first time ever, this talk was presented virtually through this series of webinars via LabRoots.

Learning Objectives

  • Break down the key factors to help guide labs to achieve great quality - from embedding through staining. Causes of excessive compression when cutting sections.
  • Clarify how to overcome distortion during microtomy and resolve issues with flotation.
  • Reviewing what to look for in H&E stains
