Figure 5: CNBs by conventional vs proposed pre-embedding method: Note that CNBs processed by the conventional free-floating method (Arm A) are fragmented, curved and placed haphazardly in various planes in paraffin block (a) and section, (b) with tissue loss appreciated at microscopy, (c, H and E × 40). In comparison, note the CNBs processed by modified improvised pre-embedding method (Arm 2) which are intact, linear, placed parallelly in a paraffin block, (d) and section, (e) and relatively less or no tissue loss at microscopy (f, H and E × 100)
