Department of Pathology



Allows one to image cells in the context of a tissue, by cutting sections of tissue on a microtome. These sections can then be stained by Hematoxylin and eosin (H&E), staining the nucleus and cytosol in blue and pink respectively. Alternatively, perform immunohistochemistry on your tissue samples to detect specific antigens via fluorescence microscopy.

For other services, and specialist microscopy, please contact the Cambridge Advanced Imaging Centre (CAIC).
Specialist equipment including, Two-Photon, STED, Scanning Electron Microscopy.
