Pathological Anatomy

The main objective of pathological anatomy is not only to study the evolution and causes of a disease, but also to make a prognosis of the effects that different diseases can have on human beings. To do this, tumor cells and body tissues are analyzed.

Thus, within pathological and cytodiagnostic studies, two types of tests are differentiated: pathological and diagnostic. In the first of them, a sample of the tissue of any organ is analyzed with the intention of identifying the type of cell and what treatments would be useful to combat the alteration. As for diagnostic tests, they are also known as biopsy and their main objective is to obtain a sample of organic fluid or tissue to study the existence of a disease, with the intention of determining a specific diagnosis.

Types of Pathology a Laboratory May Need

Tissue water bath

Water baths are a very common element in any type of microbiological laboratory. This type of equipment is a container that is capable of holding hot water to incubate samples in water at constant temperature for a prolonged period. Water baths usually have an interface that allows the user to set the correct temperature to achieve the desired results.

There are some essential steps in a histology lab. The sectioning process is one of the most important, as this procedure has to be very precise and the blocks you are cutting should not be broken in any way. When the cutting process begins, the first thing to do is to cool the paraffin blocks to make the correct cut. Then the blocks are placed in the bathroom and programmed to the desired temperature, being a fundamental step in the whole procedure.

Microtomes series

A microtome is a laboratory equipment that allows obtaining thin sections of tissue with a micrometric thickness that can be used later for microscopic study. This equipment is equipped with steel, glass or diamond blades, depending on the type of sample to be cut and the thickness in which the sections of fabrics are needed.

Pathology is a science that studies the pathophysiological and morphological alterations of a disease. That is, it studies the disease at the organic, tissue, cellular and molecular levels. For which it employs highly specialized equipment, among them we have the microtome and the cryostat.

Its basic function is to be able to meet the requirements of medical professionals in terms of histopathological analysis of the various tissues and the expression in them of the various diseases that affect humans. The procedures carried out within a pathology laboratory are grouped into two distinct phases: technical processing and diagnostic processing.

The cryostat rotating and cutting mechanism is located inside a refrigerated chamber, at a temperature between -20 and -30 °C. In this chamber is the sample, the blade and is where the sections are collected, process by which the sections are glued to a slide. Freezing is usually done on a platform inside the chamber itself cooled by Peltier's system. The tissue can also be frozen externally as quickly as desired, e.g. with liquid nitrogen, but it is advisable to place the sample in the cryostat chamber until it can match its temperature to that of the cryostat to obtain homogeneous sections.

Before freezing, the sample is embedded in a medium that is liquid at room temperature and solid at the cutting time. Therefore, we have our sample in a solid block, embedded but not included. This allows the sample to be manipulated and attached to a sample holder, which will be fixed to an axis that advances on the blade.
