5. What is the maximum size of the tissue sample that can be fixed in a PAXgene Tissue Container?

Fixation is performed within a standard tissue cassette. The maximum sample size is 4 x 15 x 15 mm so that the tissue sample fits easily into the cassette such that no physical pressure is required when closing the lid. There should be no marks or grid impressions left on the tissue by the cassette.
