Histology

Equipped with a temperature-controlled flow-through chamber, whole mount flow-through rack and 8-tip pipetting arm, our Tecan Gene Paint Robotic System automates the steps to perform in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry on slides or whole mount preparations. The instrument can process up to 48 slides or 24 whole mount samples.

Different protocols can be implemented into the software.  We have validated protocols for whole mount and tissue sections in situ hybridization.

Our facilities include cryostat, paraffin embedding and microtome for your tissue preparation.

Applications:

-  Validation of gene expression results obtained by in vitro methods such as microarrays
-  Determination of gene expression patterns
-  Histological characterization of tissue samples
