Abstract:A technic for preparing tissue sections for plastic embedding and the underlying process of polymerization is described. This technic involves the use of glycol methacrylate with a catalyst, benzoyl peroxide, and an initiator, N,N-dimethylaniline. Material prepared using this method is exceptionally well preserved, and suitable for either histological or histochemical staining.
