Description

The laboratory is specialized in immunohistochemistry and tissue micro arrays.
The facility follows the same standards as the ones used for clinical immunohistochemistry staining. This implies extra care of the preanalytical steps, which results in a highly specific and reproduceable antibody staining.

The infrastructure is funded by the income generated by the facility. The facility is partially supported by a private fund.

Autostainer from DAKO. Automated staining system.
Scanner from Aperio. Scanning slides after staining.
Microtome for sectioning.
