Our state of the art facility performs histological and immunohistochemical techniques on research and diagnostic specimens. Our main expertise is mouse and human histology of the central nervous system, but we cut up, embed, section and stain any other tissue.
We are specialised on paraffin sectioning and all our antibodies are optimised for formalin fixed, paraffin embedded material. If you are interested in frozen sectioning, please enquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our team can process large quantities (sectioning of up to 100 paraffin blocks per day) and we have the equipment to carry out 150 immunostainings per day. We are offering a large repertoire of antibodies for paraffin sections, (more than 100 antibodies optimised for human and more than 50 antibodies optimised for murine targets). We can also digitise slides, store the data and make them accessible via web browser (see our Digital Pathology section) .
In addition to histological techniques, we advise on histological analysis, in particular of the brain, and the spinal cord, on specific request. The facility is led by Professor Sebastian Brandner, who has expertise in human neuropathology and mouse phenotyping, with particular focus on developmental abnormalities, neuro-oncology and neurodegeneration.
