Microtomy: The Melding of Art and Science

Presenter: Jan Minshew
February 19, 2015
10:00am PT/ 1:00pm ET

Microtomy is one of the most important technical skills performed in clinical and research histopathology laboratories. It's a pivotal point in the production of quality slides -- everything that is done to the specimen prior to reaching the microtome will affect the section quality, and without a good section, subsequent procedures will be compromised. A good microtome and a sharp blade are important, but there is an ingenious combination of techniques, knowledge and skill necessary to produce good sections. Let's spend some time together minimizing the frustration you might feel when you sit down at the microtome or review your work under the microscope. (Jan Minshew)
