A plastic tissue embedding technic which is rapid and simple enough for routine clinical and research usage has been described. Tissues were routinely processed at 2 µ and 4 µ in a hospital laboratory within 16 hours. The quality of the sections was superior to those obtained with paraffin so that cell types are clearly recognizable. Advantages of this process over paraffin embedding include ease of storage and superior preservation of cytological detail.
