At the Research Pathology Core, we assist with routine histology techniques for preclinical and patient samples, techniques such as embedding tissue, sectioning tissue blocks and staining sections. Our staff can also prepare custom tissue blocks, including multi-tissue arrays. We offer immunohistochemistry services that include antibody characterization as well as optimization and immunohistochemical and immunofluorescence staining. We also provide histology and immunohistochemistry services in support of research projects.
