Abstract

Methods of microwave and vacuum-accelerated fixation, dehydration, and paraffin embedding are described, using a new type of vacuum and temperature stabilizable microwave histoprocessor: MFX-800. The whole histoprocessing cycle lasts 3.5-5.5 h, depending on the thickness of the tissue blocks. Well-preserved structural detail, intense staining, and good antigen preservation were achieved with various tissues. This new histoprocessing facility is recommended for routine pathology laboratories interested in speeding up their processing procedures.
