We offer basic histology services, including processing, embedding and sectioning of frozen and fixed (human and animal) tissue samples. We provide hematoxylin and eosin stained slides, as well as multiple special stains (e.g. Acid Fast Bacilli (AFB), Periodic Acid Shift (PAS), Giemsa, Gram, Masson’s trichrome etc...). We can generate unstained sections for a variety of applications, such as immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, laser capture microdissection, etc.). We also offer the generation of tissue microarrays (TMA) from different tissue blocks.
- Galileo CK4600 Tissue Microarray System: Advanced EDM Automation Tissue Array High-throughput construction of customized tissue array. Involves multiple tissue samples extracted from donor paraffin-embedded tissue blocks into a single paraffin block.
- Sakura E300 Tissue Processor: Automatically process tissue samples for embedding by dehydration after fixation in 10 percent Neutral Buffer Formalin
- Sakura Tissue-Tek Embedding Center: Used to embed the processed tissue samples in paraffin
- Leica Cryostat: To section frozen tissue blocks for further use in a variety of applications
