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.

OUR HISTOLOGY LINE
C & A provides products to improve your analysis process. Check out our extensive histology line to find the tools you need to help in disease prevention.
Our centrifuges contain everything you need for blood analysis. C & A has various centrifuge options with unique operating speeds and capacities.
Our wax trimmer is the perfect addition to your histology lab. Our trimmer is compact and powerful. This trimmer’s collection tray for melted paraffin is magnetically attached. Temperatures for this trimmer range from 80°C to 100°C.
Our microscopes allow you to analyze fine details of tissues and biological cells. Users can learn information about functional morphology, and researchers can determine abnormalities in tissue samples. We have a variety of microscopes, each with unique numbers of eyepieces and lighting options available.
Our slide warmer is perfect for your histology workflow. Our large and small slide warmers have LED display temperature control to ensure uniform heat distribution. Our slide warmer is adjustable from room temperature to 75°C (167°F).
Histology laboratories need a paraffin wax dispenser for tissue embedding and infiltration. Our paraffin wax dispensers have a durable stainless-steel interior for easy cleaning.
TISSUE FLOATING BATHS
C & A’s tissue floating bath is perfect for your histology lab. Our tissue floating baths have a black, non-stick-coated interior chamber and a design that reduces glare and improves specimen visibility. Our tissue baths also have an on/off switch, temperature control dial, pilot light, and non-skid rubber feet.
Scalpels are helpful in histology laboratories to prepare specimens. C & A has various scalpels for histology needs, including disposable and high-carbon steel scalpels.
Premiere ICE White Glass Slides make animal tissue analysis easier than before. Our clear glass slides provide perfect clarity for rapid tissue analysis.
Our tissue embedding cassettes, made of high-density, solvent-resistant polymer, are perfect for use in a histology laboratory.
Our base molds are perfect for use in a histology laboratory and will help quickly remove specimens. These molds provide a better gripping surface for handling, preventing tipping, and reducing wax waste.
SLIDE MAILERS & FOLDERS
Our slide mailers are perfect for securing and moving slides. Our heavy-duty slide mailers provide adequate protection for any samples that may need to be analyzed.
Our glass droppers are perfect for transferring specimens to slides. Our droppers are precise and leakproof. We offer a wide range of capacity and size options.
