Two modifications of the original Falck-Hillarp formaldehyde fluorescence technique are presented, both based on a recently introduced instrument, the Vibratome®, which permits cutting of unembedded tissue with a section thickness down to 10 μ,. The first modification involves sectioning of unfixed tissue at a temperature below +5°C, subsequent air drying… CONTINUE READING
