(Enhanced Manual Staining of Frozen Sections)
Processing slides with the FineFIX Module prior to staining
The high quality of Milestone frozen sections can only be obtained by freezing the specimens with PrestoCHILL and by processing the slides with FineFIX before staining.
- The FineFIX Module consists of a heated metal vessel in which the FineFIX solution is kept at 40°C.
- Frozen section slides are immersed in the solution for 15-60 seconds in order to simultaneously carry out the specimen’s fixation, dehydration and lipids extraction.
- After this pre-step, the specimens are stained according to the user’s standard protocols.
