Abstract

A method is described which combines the author's hot celloidin technique (see STAIN TECHNOL., VII. pp. 135-145) with a form of the clearing-before-cutting procedure. The method requires only 16-17 days and yields a block which may he cut in any microtome, the sections being as thin as those afforded by paraffin with comparable material. The advantages of celloidin over paraffin, listed in the author's earlier paper (v. s.), are retained in the present method which, though consuming more time than the hot process, requires less skill and gives superior results.
