Abstract

Embedding of tissue enables it to withstand sectioning. One simple approach is to freeze the material and section it in a cryostat (Sects.11.2.2 and 11.3.1). The formation of ice has an immobilizing effect and also creates an embedding medium. Embedding in its more traditional sense implies the use of gelatin, paraffin, or plastic materials.
