Our in-house histopathology services include tissue preparation, processing, and sectioning, as well as histochemistry and immunohistochemistry of fresh, frozen, and fixed human or animal tissues.

If your research requires immunohistochemistry technologies, we optimize and validate commercial or proprietary antibodies for chromogenic or fluorescence-based immunohistochemistry. We provide access to a database listing the characteristics of more than 1,500 antibodies that have been tested in the lab to date.

We offer basic imaging resources and digital whole-slide scanning of stained tissue sections, which allows researchers to view their slides online at their convenience. We can also construct tissue microarrays from human and animal formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue blocks.

Researchers can also rent our self-service instruments. These include an embedding station, a microtome, a cryostat, and a vibratome. We provide access to brightfield and fluorescence upright and dissecting microscopes, a laser capture microdissection scope, and a new high-throughput multispectral imaging system.
