This depends on the aims of the study and the tissue size. We in BSH offer three different options to proceed. It is also possible to splice the tissue for two ore more parts and using two or more methods to process. It is identical if immunohistochemistry or other special stainings needed.
- Decalcifying with EDTA and paraffin embedding. This ensures excellent staining quality and immunohistochemical analysis.
- Plastic embedding and hard tissue microtoming. Good option for the medical device studies eg. implant studies etc.
- Plastic embeddien and grinding, for titanium implants and very hard materials.
