tissue seperation & extraction
« on: May 19, 2016, 05:05:17 PM »
I'm trying to extract an arthropod from a biopsy of animal skin for identification. The mite is small, about 100um, and embedded in a column of tissue. It's too small to manually cut out under magnification. It's currently preserved in 70% ethanol.

Ideally I'd like to isolate it by loosing or dissolving the surrounding tissue without destroying its features, then conduct a visual inspection prior to sequencing for species identification. I'm open to specific suggestions and ideas. Thanks.
