Figure 2: (a-f) Conventional free-floating method for CNBs: Pictures show core biopsies taken from a breast lump (a) fixed in 10% buffered formalin, floating free in a container, (b) after decantation, the cores are transferred from the container to a petri-dish, (c) for easy pick-up. The CNBs are picked, transferred on to filter paper, and stained with eosin (d-f). Note that the tissue cores after fixation are curved in various planes, are of varying lengths and fragment depending on the tissue consistency as there is no support
