Biological specimens are subject to alteration and rapidly show signs of decay once they are isolated from a living organism. If a relatively natural condition is to be retained, the proteins of the protoplasm must be turned into a "frozen state" or denatured. This process is referred to as fixation. Fixations are used to prepare permanent microscopic slides. Before these methods are applied, the specimens must be cut or prepared depending on the material they consist of in order to become translucent.
