The Notre Dame Histology Facility (NDHF) provides a means to examine biological processes by use of immunohistochemical techniques and pathology. The facility is equipped with a Leica TP 1020 Tissue Processor, Leica microtome, Tissue-Tek III embedding station, and a Leica Cryostat with a special Tungsten blade attachment capable of slicing un-decalcified bone. The objective of the histology core is to provide high quality stained tissue sections on microscope slides. Services include tissue fixation, processing, embedding, sectioning, and staining of paraffin or frozen tissue sections. Staining of tissue sections ranges from routine H&E’s (Hematoxylin-Eosin) to special stains demonstrating specific tissue structures. The Core offers immunohistochemical staining with antibodies supplied by investigators. Lab Manager: Sarah Chapman, MBA, HT (574) 631-3813 http://ndiif.nd.edu/histology/
