Gerbil testicular morphology (40x objective) at various time points after tissue harvest from the carcass (magnification bar is 50 μm). All gerbils were euthanized at once and tissues were harvested from the carcass at 0.5 hr interval from 0 to 2.5 hr. HE staining demonstrated the retention of histological features at every time point.
