This lab is used for tissue preparation of whole-mount slides.
Tissue is sliced at 3-5 mm thickness and then fixed and embedded.
Breast slides of 5" x 7" are serial sectioned to generate 3-D volumes of tissue. They can be H&E stained or immuno-stained.
Left side- Stainless counter for handling fresh tissue - Slicer in fume hood
centre - Tissue processors, standard and microwave.
Right side - embedding and staining section.

Standard microtome for 1 x 3 and 2 x 3 paraffin sections

    This is great. I always wanted to know more about how they prepared histological samples. I have seen series of brain tissue from a microtome that allows you to understand the tissue much better than a single slice. Thanks for posting this :) Would you be able to make some snapshots showing where the microtome and other steps.
