The program of the school-seminar provided a training practical part for laboratory technicians-histologists. Within the framework of this two-day practical course, the basics of the application of modern methods of preparing a histological preparation were considered. Emphasis was placed on the processes of decalcification, microtomy and staining of drugs. Laboratory assistants were able to test reagents and consumables for histological studies of the Russian manufacturer.
