The Department of Comparative Medicine's AHS provides a broad range of histological techniques that include standard processing and embedding methods as well as processing of larger specimens, serial and step sectioning, sectioning of frozen specimens, and a variety of staining techniques. We offer special orientation of tissues to match images from MRI, CT, and other imaging modalities or for unbiased stereology. In addition to routine hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) staining, we offer special stains to highlight infectious agents (bacteria, fungi), cellular elements, different cell types, and tissue matrix components. AHS also offers immunohistochemical assays.
