Accelerating disease research via specimen processing in order to visualize biological structures and molecules within tissues

The Histopathology Platform is well-appointed with state-of-the-art automated instruments that provide access to technologies that go beyond standard histological evaluations. In addition to offering routine processing, embedding, sectioning and staining of paraffin and frozen tissues, the facility houses a fully automated immunohistochemistry (IHC) and in situ hybridization (ISH) system enabling simultaneous protocols and increased efficiency. The platform is also equipped with a Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) system for the selective isolation of small number of cells from heterogeneous tissues and an automated digital slide scanning and image analysis system. Experienced personnel are available to provide standard services, training on facility instruments, technical assistance and consultation.
