Facility Details

The Histopathology Core facility was established to provide Histology services to the investigators associated with the Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE)in Regenerative Medicine. The objective is to provide high quality stained tissue sections on microscope slides to support the research at the institute. Services include tissue fixation, processing, embedding, sectioning, staining and coverslipping of paraffin, plastic or frozen tissue sections. Staining of tissue sections ranges from routine H&E's (Hematoxylin-Eosin) to special stains demonstrating specific tissue structures such as collagen, amyloid, bone, cartilage, vessels, kidney basement membranes, hematopoetic cells and PAS reactions. Stains offered include Trichrome, Von Kossa, PicroSirius Red, Elastic, Giemsa, PAS and others are developed and provided as needed. The Core offers antibody validation services with respect to immunohistochemistry and provides a wide range of immunohistochemical stains. In addition, the Core generates custom tissue microarrays and performs bone histomorphometry.
