The histology laboratory 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 an array of common and special histological stains
available 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, electron microscopy or the imaging facility please contact the histology
lab via phone or email to discuss your request. 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.
