Histology, cytology and other related scientific disciplines study the microscopic anatomy of tissues and cells. Quality sample processing (and quality fixation above all) should be carried out in order to achieve good tissue and cellular structures visualization. Tissue samples must be immersed in an optimally chosen fixative immediately after sampling, because a timely fixation will prevent autolysis, putrefaction and other unwanted cellular changes. BioForm S is a buffered solution of formaldehyde and methanol. It is an ideal choice for fixating samples of lung epithelial tissue and alveolar cells. It is possible to stain the structures after fixating with BioForm S. It is used as a part of the fixative for bone tissue samples.
