This laboratory has a system Exakt® equipment which enables the execution of histological techniques of decalcified tissue, from its initial processing, tissue fixation and processing until the end of histological staining. This system also enables the execution of fresh cuts in biological samples without the tearing of tissue and the execution of cuts in extremely hard materials such as titanium. The processing of biological samples following calcified and decalcified techniques can also be performed. An image analysis system is also available - Bioquant Osteo 2009 software - coupled to a microscope and magnifying glass, which allows histomorphometry of histological slides.
