The histology platform provides services for researchers and students to process their tissues and cells
for histopathological examination.
We offer paraffin, cryo, and electron microscopy techniques including processing, embedding,
sectioning, staining and imaging. We have a variety of histology staining techniques with the ability to
develop special stains upon request for specific projects. Selected immunofluorescent and
immunohistochemical detection and special assays are also available upon request. Histomorphometry
studies related to changes in histopathology of samples can be identified using new techniques in
imaging and analysis.
To request a histology service, please contact the histology lab via phone or email to discuss your
request PRIOR to sample drop off. At this time we will have a consultation and provide you with a cost
estimate for your approval. Once the estimate is approved you will be provided information about the
correct way to prepare your samples for optimal results. We will then schedule an appointment for
sample drop off.
Your samples must be accompanied by the completed Work Request Form, Sample Submission Form,
Sample Waiver Form, and signed estimate we will have prepared after your consultation.
Please do not bring samples to the lab without an appointment.
Please also see the information on the website about sample preparation on the Paraffination Service,
Cryo Service, and Electron Microscopy pages.
