To allow fine sectioning, tissue samples need to be solidified. One of the best materials for this is paraffin wax. Paraffin Embedding makes the tissue samples ideal for slicing and for improving the access of dyes, probes, antibodies, and can reduce the overlay of different cells layers.
Samples from Advanced Tissue Services are made from high quality tissues fixed in formalin immediately post excision and embedded in IHC-grade paraffin.
Paraffin Embedded tissue allows the tissue sample to be cut into a slice as little as 1-2 cell layers thick.
