Histology Services

The histology lab provides services to 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.
