Precision-cut lung slices (PCLS) represent an ex vivo model widely used in visualizing interactions between lung structure and function. The major advantage of this technique is that the presence, differentiation state, and localization of the more than 40 cell types that make up the lung are in accordance with the physiological situation found in lung tissue, including the right localization and patterning of extracellular matrix elements. Here we describe the methodology involved in preparing and culturing PCLS followed by detailed practical information about their possible applications.
