Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 2002, vol.97, n.2, pp. 273-274. ISSN 0074-0276. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0074-02762002000200024.
A new technique for fixation of Biomphalaria glabrata for histologic studies is described. It consists in performing several external holes in the shell, before placing the entire snail into the fixative. It is a very practical and quick procedure that showed excellent results when compared to the usual techniques.
