State of the art histology service and facility for academic research, clinical diagnostics and industry
Lead: Prof Sebastian Brandner, Division of Neuropathology
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.
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) .
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.
Please see the price list for the individual procedures for research projects.
We offer in situ hybridisation with the RNAScope probes from ACD biosciences. Customers order proprietary ACD RNAscope® Probes (double "ZZ" oligo probes designed to hybridize to their specific RNA target of interest). Each target RNA is designed with 20 double Z probe pairs over a 1 Kb region. Any probe for virtually ANY gene in ANY genome for interrogation in ANY tissue can be designed
