Slide 1 Welcome Slide 2 Slide 3 Discuss Pre-Analytics and the impact of improper fixation and artifacts on tissue processing Discuss Fixation and the impact of incomplete fixation on tissue processing Describe the impact of improper Prosection Determine satisfactory Processing of samples Explain why routine Maintenance is a critical success factor to proper tissue processing Slide 4 This slide has two examples of what the ideal sections in a perfect world look like under the scope. The skin section on the left is clean looking with the Eosin staining the components of the dermis with different shades. The colon section on the right is crisp with well-defined nuclei and cilia. There is no background staining or muddiness to the stain. Slide 5 One artifact seen the lab that is n...
