Application Note: Tissue processing artifacts: Checklist for success
31 May 2023

This downloadable training resource helps you to learn more about what is "optimal" and what is "not" in tissue processing, leveraging examples and descriptions for optimizing laboratory techniques.

Learning objectives for this checklist:

  • Audience: Scientists that have a basic knowledge of tissue preservation and the methodology for using a conventional tissue processor.
  • Action: Anticipate and consider pre-analytical and processing factors that create tissue processing artifacts.
  • Criteria: Examples of tissue slides without artifacts and well-preserved morphology. Examples of tissue slides that have artifacts and/or poor morphology due to poor practices, over or under processing.
  • Degree: Examples and explanation of factors that create suboptimal results that can be avoided by identifying the root cause of artifacts.
