Steps in Histopathology we follow:
A specimen brought to the histopathology laboratory must first be logged, identified, and then subjected to specimen preparation prior to tissue processing.
- Sample collection
- Logging of specimen
- Preparation of tissues which include fixation and decalcification
- Processing of tissues includes dehydration, clearing, paraffin impregnation.
Preparation of sections which include the process of microtomy, attachment of sections to slide, and removal of pigments and precipitates
Staining and mounting procedure, which includes dewaxing, hydration, staining dehydration, clearing, and mounting.
