Tissue Processing & Embedding
Tissue processing involves several distinct procedures including tissue preservation, dehydration and clearing, infiltration and embedding, sectioning, and staining.
Cellpath is able to offer leading products for use within each step of the tissue processing stage.
During the embedding of tissue, samples are placed into molds along with liquid embedding material (such as CellWax) which is then hardened. This is achieved by cooling in the case of paraffin wax. The hardened blocks containing the tissue samples are then ready to be sectioned.
CellPath is able to supply a number of products for tissue embedding including moulds, embedding rings, wax, and equipment.
