We offer complete services for immunohistochemistry and immunocytochemistry and we develop and provide customized protocols related to histology, histochemistry and immunohistochemistry.
The facility is equipped with technological instrumentation including a Leica TP1020 Automated Tissue Processor, a Leica XL Autostainer, a Fisher HistoCenter embedding station and Microm microtomes and cryostat.
- Tissue fixation, processing, embedding, and sectioning of paraffin- embedded and frozen specimens
- Plastic embedding and sectioning
- Routine histological stains (e.g., H&E, trichrome, and others);
- Special stains (e.g., Sirius Red, PAS, reticular fiber stain, Voerhoff’s elastic stain, von Kossa, Orcein, van Gieson, and many others)
- Immunohistochemistry, immunocytochemistry, histochemistry, etc.
- Customized characterization of antibodies for immunohistochemistry
- Special procedures (e.g., mammary gland whole mounts, en face preparations of arteries, etc.)
