Our histopathology laboratory can support every stage of the tissue analysis process, from sample excision and processing to staining and patholgical analysis. Our experienced histologists and technicians put the utmost care into ensuring our client samples are optimally prepared for downstream analysis and interpretation by a licensed pathogist. Our flexible protocols can be adapted to meet the unique staining requirements of a wide variety of analyses utilizing fresh, frozen or FFPE tissues.
Types of Tissue Processing Include:
Methods for sectioning frozen tissues with no dehydration steps.
Formalin is used to preserve the tissue from degradation and to maintain the cells’ structure. Dehydration, clearance and infiltration with an embedding matrix (most commonly paraffin wax) then take place for sectioing and slide preparation as well as long-term preservation for archival purposes.
