What is GIESBRECHT?

A method of mounting serial sections. Make a solution of brown shellac in alcohol; filter and paint on warmed slides; allow to dry. Over this paint a thin layer of creasote and put the sections in place. Then heat the slide on a water-bath for fifteen minutes at the melting-point of paraffin. Allow to cool; dissolve the paraffin in turpentine; mount in balsam. The tissue must have been stained en masse before embedding.
