Re: [Histonet] Kidney Biopsies


Instead of trying to stain the tissue a different color (so the white-ish
tissue can be seen against the white freezing media), why not buy a freezing
media that is a different color than the tissue, such as one that is blue?

Several companies sell the colored freezing media, which can be used to
either allow the tissue to be seen or to keeping track of tissues easier
- e.g. 6 different patients come in for FS all at the same time - patient 1
FS is pink, pt. 2 FS is blue, pt. 3 is yellow, etc
- e.g. keeping track of different margins from same tissue - 12 to 3 pm is
pink, 3 to 6 pm is blue, etc.)
