The entire procedure from (live) specimen till stained ultrathin resin section will be covered from start to finish. If you participate most of the time will be spent in the lab working with standard specimens like cultured cells or tissues. Besides embedding in a resin and managing the ultra-microtome, the preparation of tools and other necessities will be covered.
