Once again we have an interesting question and I know someone out there has
a good answer.
Thanks in advance!!!
Any idea how much shrinkage from the original unfixed tissue size occurs
during paraffin embedding?
We are trying to do Morphometric measurements of a microvessel from inside
a human leg nerve.
We were under the impression that the dehydration step results in tissue
shrinkage of about 20%. Does
anybody have a "reference" to shrinkage?
