Histopathology is the diagnosis and study of diseases of the tissue. Diagnosis is made by examining a small piece of tissue from the skin, liver, kidney or other organ. This is called a biopsy.
To examine a biopsy carefully under a microscope, the tissue needs to be sliced very thinly and placed on a slide to observe cell abnormalities.
Histology Paraffin Wax plays a vital role in the process of infiltration, embedding and sectioning in order produce a high-quality biopsy slide.
Around 20 million slides are examined in the UK each year.
Poth Hille have been formulating and manufacturing high quality Histology Wax for more than 50 years.
