Frequently Asked Questions

What maintenance is needed for histology equipment?

Most pieces of histology equipment require regular upkeep and maintenance to ensure the best results. For example, all machinery should be inspected and cleaned after each use to remove any residue that could contaminate the next samples. Certain types of machines, such as cover slippers, also must be stored in areas where they won’t be exposed to improper conditions. Always consult the manufacturer’s guidelines regarding maintenance to ensure you follow all necessary procedures. 

How often does histology equipment require maintenance?
