Histology lab at the Fish Health Laboratory prior to renovation

Detailed Description

Histology laboratory with coverslipping area to the left.  Coverslipping is when tissues cross-sections that are dried onto slides are coverslipped with a thin piece of glass.  In the center is the file/record keeping area where every sample was logged and given a study number.  And on the right is the embedding center where processed tissues were immersed in paraffin wax prior to being microtomed and placed on a glass slide.  Photo was taken prior to laboratory renovations which began in 2021.
