Organizational, technological and scientific issues of morphology and molecular genetics



Morphological research is the only way to accurately verify the tumor pathology and the characteristics of its histological and genetic profile, necessary to personify the treatment strategy and predict the course of the disease. The review discusses organizational and technical aspects related to the preanalytical stage of working with biomaterial to achieve high-quality and reliable results. In particular, much attention is paid to the effect of cold ischemia on morphological, immunohistochemical and molecular parameters.
