Histology Core Facility

The Histology Core Facility provides equipment and support for tissue embedding, sectioning and staining. IMB members can use the equipment of the Core Facility after booking in advance and a mandatory introduction and training session. In addition, we provide support on machines and basic protocols (e.g. H&E staining, in situ hybridization, immuno-stainings).

Currently, we have machines for paraffin tissue processing, embedding and sectioning, for vibratome sectioning and for cryo-sectioning. In addition to the equipment and associated consumables, we provide all reagents needed to perform routine histological stainings (e.g. H&E) manually.
