Re: [Histonet] Skin Artifact Identification

From:Rene J Buesa

Santoianni & Hammami published an article in Jorunal Histotechnol.[13(2):135-136(1990)] where they attribute a nuclear "bubbling" artifact to oven heat-affixing the sections above 60║C before they were completely free from water underneath.
  I have been able to corroborate their finding. If this makes sense to you try to be absolutely sure that there is no water left underneath your sections before heating them in the oven.
  Hope this will help you!

some of our skin cases is vacuoles within the nuclei of squamous cells of
