Though labeled “wrong color for a heart”*, this actually *is* the color of a lot of cardiac muscle tissue on slides I’ve seen. It doesn’t seem right, but there it is. This one bleeds natural and artificial cherry goop. I bought too many the other day, that is the why we’re revisiting this as media. Not hearts: that’s offal. (Groan away, I can’t hear you!) Anyhow. Popt heart.
What’s the real lesson?
Cryomicrotomatically broken heart: roughly the off-white to dusky color of non-enzymatically browned toaster pastries.
