French term or phrase: parvenue fixée

I am struggling to understand the correct meaning of "parvenue fixée" in this context: Capsule de sein droit parvenue fixée, mesurant 5.5 x 6 x 0.4 cm. On observe que la paroi interne est d’aspect rugueux et le paroi externe lisse. Prélѐvements étagés en deux cassettes.

Does it mean that the sample is stained, that it is enclosed somewhere, or some other thing?

I would really appreciate your replies.

Thank you!
