Histology laboratory (BSL2)

For work with fresh frozen or paraffin embedded tissues.

Kryostat ANA Futura

The laboratory has equipment and working stations for:

  • Sectioning (HM355S)
  • Cryosectioning (CryoStar NX70)
  • Antigen retrieval
  • Fixation, deparaffinization and routine stainings

Students and staff who wish to use the facility must first undergo a general introduction. Note that specific introduction of the microtomes and/or cryostat is only given to people who have experience in sectioning/cryosectioning. Students and staff who want to learn this technique must first acquire the training elsewhere, for example through courses or collaborations.
