The NDIIF Histology Core provides a means to further investigate disease models and biological processes in mice and rats. Services include tissue fixation, processing, embedding, sectioning, staining, and coverslipping of paraffin or frozen tissue sections. Staining of tissue sections ranges from routine H&E’s (Hematoxylin-Eosin) to special stains demonstrating specific tissue structures. Masson’s Trichrome, Periodic Schiff, and Verhoff Van Geison among other special stains are developed and provided as needed. The histology core is also able to offer a variety of specific immunohistochemical stains. Histopathologic interpretation of tissues is available. The facility is equipped with technological instrumentation including a Shandon Citadel 200 Automated Tissue Processor, a Tissue-Tek III embedding station, and Leica RM2155 microtome and Leica CM1850 cryostat.
