Mass Academy Student Creates Quality Slides


I really have to praise both of my high school histology interns, they are smart, hard working, talented students who have created fantastic tissue slides in just 1 week of microtome practice.  Their decision to care about histology and do the best they can really moves me to believe there is still hope for this field to continue to grow.  I sat with one student to go over her slides and teach her about the sections quality and any pertinent cell structural information know.  I was happily surprised to see unbelievable section quality.  All the tissues were in the exact middle of the slide.  This is a hard feat to accomplish for students in their first week of cutting.  The attribute that really surprised me was the artifact free sections.  There were virtually no knife marks, bubbles, tears, folds or wrinkles.  This was in all the 10 tissue types we looked at.  Some of them like pancreas, brain, spinal column are difficult to cut for 10 year veterans.  I thought, my god she really is good.  Take a look at the pictures, decide for yourself.
