Speciman preparation is key for accurately diagnosing diseases in the tissue, which is why WeCare has a range of quality pathology instruments. From the moment a small piece of tissue is cut from a patient, the tissue sample is preserved in chemicals in a process called fixation to stop it from decaying. A labeled tissue sample is then stored in formalin until it can be processed.
Specimen processing involves dehydrating the tissue sample, removing alcohol so it is more receptive to paraffin, and embedding it in paraffin in a block. The block is sliced into thin sections, placed on a slide, and stained so it can be viewed under a microscope and the cause of disease determined.
When you need to find out what is wrong with a tissue sample, you need quality specimen preparationinstruments that you can trust. From processing specimens to embedding and sectioning them, WeCare’s surgical instrument deliver quickly and safely specimens that are intact.
