Porcine adipose tissue slices were fixed with osmium tetroxide and cells released by treatment with urea. Cell size and number were determined by an instrumental method using a particle counter. Storage of adipose tissue samples as frozen slices or in osmium, in post-osmium saline, in urea or in post-urea Triton all tended to produce less acceptable results than obtained with fresh tissue slices. Various storage conditions either tended to diminish cell size, to produce small particles or to… CONTINUE READING
