Overview of Services

The objective of the Core is to provide high-quality stained tissue sections on microscope slides to support clinical and basic science research at our institution.

Our facility offers a broad range of high-quality histological and immunohistochemical services available on a fee-for-service basis to investigators. Services include tissue fixation, processing, embedding, sectioning, staining and coverslipping of paraffin or frozen tissue sections. Staining of tissue sections ranges from routine H&E’s (Hematoxylin-Eosin) Trichrome, and PAS. In addition, special stains such as Von Kossa, PicroSirius Red, Elastic and others are available upon request.

Our Core offers immunohistochemical staining with a general selection of antibodies. In addition, our services can expand to complement your research in the creation of protocols that include antibodies for immunofluorescent or immnuperoxidase studies. In addition double/triple antibody staining services are available upon request. More than 24 optimized mouse and more than 75 optimized human/monkey antibody staining protocols are available.

We also specialize in custom antibody staining optimized to fit your specific needs. Tutorials and equipment use are also available.
