Figure 2: Artifacts excluded from tissue “dropout” tally. The dropout detection process [Figure 01] was capable of detecting very small, refractile, and folded contaminating structures that were artifacts not representative of the tissue section present on the slide. These included dust and fibers (a), compression boundaries caught by the microtome knife along the side edge of the paraffin block (b), individual disaggregated cells (c), and floating contaminants (d, clump of squamous cells in a placental section)
