Stained and mounted slides in the ubiquitous 20-slide folder. The folder is delivered to the pathologist, who examines the slides with a microscope and makes a pathologic diagnosis.

In US labs, the slides are kept for at least ten years before being trashed. In that time, some fading does occur, but they are still readable. Some labs never throw out old slides but store them indefinitely.
