The three-dimensional structure of skin can be studied at near-native conditions at the molecular level with a new technique called molecular electron tomography of vitreous tissue sections (tissue TOVIS). Its usage is, however, still largely limited by a difficult sample handling procedure. Here we discuss some measures for the efficient application of tissue TOVIS to dermatological research.
