Science of Tissue Processing, Tidal Versus Rotational Processing
Title: Science of Tissue Processing, Tidal Versus Rotational Processing
Date: October 27, 2022
Time: 1 p.m. ET
Presenter: Andrew Lisowski
Save Time and Improve Tissue Quality
Quality tissue specimen preparation is fundamental to anatomic pathology.
Tissue processing is the most complex and one of the longest steps in the histology workflow. The quality of the processed specimens will determine the readability of the stained slides. By reducing processing times and increasing tissue quality, diagnoses can be delivered more rapidly, promoting better patient care.
In this webinar, we will review the purpose and function of the tissue processing steps, discuss tissue processing reagents and agitation techniques, and identify ways to improve your laboratory’s tissue processing methods by using a rotational tissue processor.
This webinar will help you:
- Describe the tissue processing steps
- Identify tissue processing reagents
- Explain the different tissue processing methods
- Compare the efficiencies of tidal versus rotational agitation tissue processing
