Histology

VWR® can provide you with reagents and apparatus to prepare, preserve, and process tissues, as well as cut & stain sections.

There are many different techniques for the preparation of tissues and many methods of examination. Most involve the preparation of sections that are examined by various types of microscopy, but no single method of examination or single staining technique, will display all the cells of the tissue equally well. It is possible to demonstrate morphology by dye staining; functional characteristics by histochemical, immunological, or molecular methods; and ultra-structure by electron microscopy, all using the same specimen. You'll find everything from dissection tools to stains and reagents located in this section.
