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.
