Histology

C & A Scientific’s Histology line provides technicians with the necessary equipment to gather samples, test diagnostics, and analyze specimens.

WHAT IS HISTOLOGY, AND WHAT MAKES A HISTOLOGY LAB EFFICIENT?  

Histology, known as microscopic anatomy, studies tissue structures and how diseases impact them. For example, nervous tissue histology assesses for abnormalities and aids in cancer research and diagnosis. To study tissue, laboratories prepare and stain microscope tissue sections to examine cell features for analysis.

Let’s break the process down even further. Pull tissue samples from plants, animals, or humans and place them in an embedding cassette for processing. Use a paraffin dispenser and base mold to suspend the tissues before using a microtome to trim them into ribbons. The ribboned sections then “float” in a water bath before being placed on slides for observation.

Your lab becomes efficient when histology products perform well and provide accurate results. C & A Scientific’s products can assist your histology lab in completing accurate tissue analysis.
