THE FINAL STEP TOWARDS FROZEN SECTIONS OF PERMANENT-LIKE QUALITY Conventional frozen sections provide a short turnaround time of 15-20 minutes, but with the disadvantage of a lower diagnostic quality with respect to paraffin sections due to cryoembedding artifacts and the variability of staining protocols. One of the main reasons for their lower quality, versus a FFPE section, is that frozen sections are only stained while FFPE sections are first processed (fixation + dehydration + clearing) and subsequently stained. It is now possible to produce frozen sections with a permanent-like...
