[…] placed at −20°c for 10 days. after polymerization, serial 5-μm sections were cut perpendicular to the osseous defects and the surrounding bone using a diamond saw made for nondecalcified tissues (polycut sm2500, leica, wetzlar, germany). the bone sections were then stained with movat pentachrome using an automated slide stainer (shandon gemini es, thermofisher scientific, waltham, usa) […]

[…] darmstadt, germany) which were set horizontally and perpendicularly to the sagittal axis, and polished in a conventional machine. histological 5-µm-thick sections were cut using the jung ultrafrase polycut e microtome (reichert-jung k, leica, heidelberg, germany). to minimise the variance in thickness among the specimens, the slices were obtained from the middle region of the bone defects […]

[…] legs were removed were embedded in carboxymethylcellulose gel. twenty micrometer-thick serial sections were made through the sagittal plane of each mouse with the tape-sectioning method using a cryo polycut cryostat (reichert-jung, nussloch, germany) at −20°c. sections on adhesive tape (yu-ki ban, nitto medical co., ltd., osaka, japan) were desiccated and placed on a bas-ms2040 imaging plate […]

[…] in graded ethanol solutions, and embedded at −20 °c in methyl methacrylate resin (merck) without decalcification. resin embedded hemicalvarium bone samples were cut (5 μm thick) using a jung polycut e microtome (leica) with hard tissue blades (leica). after immersion in a drop of 50% v/v ethanol, sections were stretched to a fold-free state on polysine glass slides (menzel-gläser), […]

[…] (from 70 % to 100 %) and embedded in poly-methyl methacrylate (pmma). for von kossa stain, 30 μm sections of resin embedded samples were cut using an automated sledge microtome (reichert-jung, polycut s) and collected onto gelatine coated microscope slides, which were covered with a plastic film and dried overnight at 60 °c. the plastic film was dissolved in xylene and the samples […]
