About the Histology Core Facility
The mission of our histology Core is to provide technical and educational services. The Core offers standard and customized research-specific histology services on a wide variety of tissues samples and staining techniques depending on research questions.
The (immune)histological study can be performed either by the investigator under the supervision of the Core staff or the Core Staff. The Histology Core works with the LSI advanced imaging laboratory and electromicroscopy unit and depending on researcher’s interest, we will be able to refer researchers to these core facilities.
Histology related services include:
The process of incubating tissue sections/cells with specific antibodies to form antigen-antibody complex for the detection of targeted antigen. Detection is commonly achieved by using a colorimetric reaction or a fluorescent signals. Multiple labelling techniques such as direct, indirect and indirect with signal amplification are available. These techniques can be applied to both thin cross-section (<10um) to thick cross-section (~200um) or tissue whole mount staining.
Customized training is provided to meet specific needs of researchers. We also provide troubleshooting of various staining for your samples and discussion on best histological methods to address your research questions.
List of equipment
LSI histology charges include charges for reagents, services and slides containers for storage before analysis. Pricing for training packages, available antibodies and histology price will be updated on this PPMS soon.
For advanced histology and staining, the service charge depend on the nature of protocol, the complexity of the procedure and the number of specimens.
