Title (EN) SCAFFOLD FOR TISSUE SAMPLE ORIENTATION
(FR) SUPPORT POUR ORIENTATION D’ÉCHANTILLONS DE TISSUS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Disclosed are scaffolds for orienting tissue samples. The inventive scaffolds comprises at least one hydrogel or organogel or hydrocoUoid which contains at least one component that is substantially liquid in the temperature range of 40C to 370C. The inventive scaffolds are: (a) sufficiently flexible in the temperature range to permit the scaffold to be to be bent (or otherwise manipulated) and yet then return to substantially the same shape; (b) sufficiently rigid in the temperature range to maintain a tissue sample in a particular pre-determined orientation; and (c) not microtome sectionable. The substantially liquid component can be replaced during fixing and processing of said tissue with one or more components that are substantially solid in said temperature range, such that said scaffold is then microtome sectionable.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des supports pour orienter des échantillons de tissus. Les supports selon l’invention comprennent au moins un hydrogel ou un organogel ou un hydrocolloïde qui contient au moins un composant qui est essentiellement liquide dans la plage de températures allant de 40 °C à 370 °C. Les supports selon l’invention sont : (a) suffisamment flexibles dans la plage de température pour permettre au support de se plier (ou autrement manipulé) et pouvoir pourtant ensuite retrouver essentiellement la même forme ; (b) suffisamment rigide dans la plage de température pour maintenir un échantillon de tissus dans une orientation particulière prédéterminée ; et (c) ne peuvent pas être sectionnés microscopiquement. Le composant essentiellement liquide peut être remplacé pendant la fixation et le traitement desdits tissues avec un ou plusieurs composants qui sont essentiellement solides dans ladite plage de température, de sorte que ledit support puisse ensuite être sectionné microscopiquement.
