Histology Service Shared Resource Facility
The facility provides basic histology services, with capability to process, embed and section fixed and frozen tissues for the Mount Sinai community. The facility will prepare unstained slides suitable for a variety of applications (histochemistry, immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, LCM), as well as hematoxylin and eosin sections for routine light microscopic evaluation.
The facility currently supports functions for tissue procurement, both from consented and anonymized collections. Pathologists in charge of procurement can be contacted for consultations to determine investigator requirements for human tissues in translational research, and then arrange procurement as feasible.
