The histology facility ("histocore") welcomes users to carry out histological work using modern equipment and microscopes. Histology facilities are located on the 3rd floor of the Arvo building (E-wing, laboratories and microscope rooms). 

Histocore has the facilities and equipment to perform the most commonly used histological techniques. The facilities offer tools for tissue processing, paraffin and cryoblock preparation and sectioning, and visualisation of cell and tissue structures. A wide range of histochemical and immunohistochemical staining and detection methods, tissue microarrays and spatial transcriptomics are available. Many of the instruments are automated. A full service is available when needed. 

A digital slide scanner can read and acquire views of the entire slide area by light microscopy or by using fluorescence channels in the instrument. Histocore encourages the use of virtual microscopy to generate data for quantitative scientific analysis.
