Step One: Fixation

In the fixation stage, a fixative is used to modify tissue by stabilizing the protein, so it is resistant to further changes; thus, fixatives are used to protect tissue from degradation and to maintain the structure of the cells, including sub-cellular components, such as cell organelles (nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria).

Differentiators

  • Extensive line of common fixatives
  • "Use tested" by an independent histology lab
