Histology Service

The Histology laboratory in the Section of Comparative medicine will prepare animal tissues for microscopic examination. This includes tissue fixation, embedding, generation of frozen section or hematoxylin and eosin stained slides, special stains or unstained sections for immunohistochemistry.

Getting Started

Please fill out the online request form, and print out a copy to include with your samples. Please bring samples to LSOG 118. Depending upon the request and our case load, samples will be processed within 4-10 days. We will call you when they are ready, and they can then be picked up at the same location.

We will accept fixed animals, tissues, cassettes or blocks. We can provide fixatives if you need them - please see Fixation Protocols to identify the fixative and the protocol most suitable for your samples. If whole animals are submitted, please contact Carmen Booth  or Caroline Zeiss to discuss the most appropriate sections to cut in.
