Histology is a structural science concerned with the demonstration of cellular morphology, chemical composition and function of normal and abnormal tissue. Many dyes and chemicals are used in histology and it is necessary to know their composition and how they act and react with each other. The end result yields a tissue section exhibiting distinct colours, making it possible to distinguish tissue structures and pathologies through microscopic examination.
