histology

The study of the microscopic structure of the body. All healthy tissues are identifiable microscopically and a knowledge of normal histology is an essential basis for the recognition of the specific microscopic changes occurring in disease. The microscopic study of diseased tissue and the identification of diseases by this means is called histopathology.

At this point of time, histological technique was underdeveloped, and their examinations were very simple, on native tissue in unstained slides [1, 2].
In summary, our data indicate that noninvasive techniques such as sd-OCT scan of the retina in rodents are powerful tools to monitor the course of retinal degeneration with respect to morphometric analyses and at the same time reduce the number of animals sacrificed for histological techniques. Quantitative anatomic parameters can be extracted from sd-OCT scans and are in good accordance with morphometric data from histological work-up.
Standard methods of staining as described by Bancoft in theory and practice of histological techniques were followed.

Samples were fixed in Davidson's fixative and processed for pathology using standard histological techniques (Howard & Smith 1983).
For the histological techniques, three oyster were collected every 72 hours, fixed in 10% formalin for 24h, then included in paraffin (tissue processor Leica TP1020, inclusion center Leica EG1140H), and three 9[micro]m serial sections were done with a rotator microtome (Microm-Zeiss, model HM-315).

In order to clarify these issues, other methods of analysis could be employed using, for example, histological techniques (to establish regional distribution in the brain) or chromatographic analysis of the brain homogenate (to ascertain which monoterpenoids and/or metabolites reach the brain).

For histological study small segments of the CS from its proximal, middle, distal parts, including the Thebesian valves were processed by routine histological techniques and 5-7 microns thick sections were cut and stained by--H and E, Masson's Trichome and Orcein.
Conclusions: It was concluded that aspiration cytology is quite accurate in detecting and classifying malignancy as compared to histological techniques. However combined cytology and histology increases the diagnostic sensitivity.
A slice including digestive gland (DG) and gonad (G) was fixed in 10% formalin in sea water, and then processed through standard histological techniques (Gabe 1968).
