Experimental Pathology Research Laboratory

NYU Langone’s Experimental Pathology Research Laboratory (RRID:SCR_017928) provides researchers with a range of services, access to advanced instruments, and training to facilitate the production of high-quality animal tissue samples for morphological and molecular analyses. We also support multiplex immunofluorescence staining, RNA in situ hybridization (ISH), and imaging analysis.

To reserve time on an instrument, faculty, staff, and investigators must be registered in iLab. We have also provided iLab login instructions for NYU Langone, NYU, NYU College of Dentistry, and external users.

Requests and Reservations

Request services or reserve instruments using our iLab platform.

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

If your research requires immunohistochemistry technologies, we optimize and validate commercial or proprietary antibodies for chromogenic or fluorescence-based immunohistochemistry including seven-color multiplexing. We provide access to a database listing the antibodies that have been tested in the lab to date and are currently in stock.

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.

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.
