The UW Department of Surgery Histology Core facility provides histology services to clinical and basic science researchers associated with the Department of Surgery. The objective of the Core is to provide high-quality stained tissue sections on microscope slides to support clinical and basic science research at our institution.
Our facility offers a broad range of high-quality histological services available on a fee-for-service basis to investigators. Services include tissue fixation, processing, embedding, sectioning, staining and coverslipping of paraffin or frozen tissue sections.
To place an order, please visit our iLabs website. You will need to create an iLabs account to submit a request.
Our Core offers a variety of commonly used antibodies. In addition, our services can complement your research in the creation of protocols for new antibodies. Double/triple antibody staining services are available upon request. Please contact Histo Core for an updated list of available stains.
IRB or IACUC approval is required for all services requiring the use of human or animal tissue, respectively. Service requests will NOT be processed without the necessary compliance information.
