pinning method

The pinprick appears in cross section as a small hole surrounded by collapsed cells. The cells which were completely differentiated before the tissue was pierced (a) are normal, as are those which were elaborated afterwards (c); those which were still differentiating (b) are slightly deformed. (von Wilpert 1990)
