HistoGel is a great innovation to capture minute samples and maintain
them through processing. We have been using it for our cytology fine needle
specimens for more than a year. The pathologist's were so impressed, that we
are now using it to capture and process some of our smaller more friable
neuropath specimens.

HistoGel comes with it's own unique heating and cooling unit, which
liquifies the gel to accept the specimen. After accepting the specimen,
the gel is cooled back down (encapsulating the sample into a gel button).
The button is then placed into a cassette and processed as usual.
The button can be embedded into paraffin and sectioned with ease. The
gel button sections do not stain around the specimen like agarose.
