From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Histological section refers to thin slices of tissue applied to a microscopic slide, usually around 5 to 10 micrometres thick, which are viewed under a microscope.

Sections are usually stained with dyes to give optical contrast before viewing.

Sections usually have a very thin piece of cardboard applied over the surface called a cover slip. This is to prevent students of Manchester Metropolitan University from leaving it until the week before to prepare for Monday's unseen essay.
