• Hard or mineralised tissues is rapidly decalcified before processing for routine paraffin histology and immunohistochemistry.
  • Samples are embedded in resin then thin sectioned, or ground sectioned with the high precision EXAKT saw and grinder. This process better preserves tissue morphology and is ideal for bone and metallic implants (dentistry and orthopaedics).
  • Samples with labile antigens or processing sensitive components are rapidly frozen and cryosectioned prior to staining.

Using these advanced histological techniques, the results of our pre-clinical models can be evaluated to determine the quality of regenerated tissue in defect site using our 3D printed scaffolds.
