Our state-of-the-art histology laboratories are equipped for all types of tissues to accommodate various analyses. They are staffed with expert scientists, technicians, and board-certified pathologists in anatomic pathology. We can support every stage of the tissue analysis process, from sample processing to staining and pathological analysis. Our staff of 8 experienced histologists and several technicians ensure client samples are optimally prepared for downstream analysis and interpretation by a licensed pathologist. We can adapt our flexible protocols to meet the unique staining requirements of a wide variety of studies utilizing fresh, frozen, or FFPE tissues.

Types of Tissue Processing Include:

  • Frozen Tissue sections

  • Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sections - Formalin is used to preserve the tissue from degradation and maintain cells’ structure. Dehydration, clearance, and infiltration with an embedding matrix (paraffin wax) occur for sectioning and slide preparation as well as long-term preservation for archival purposes.
