Histology Facility

Histology facility (HF) welcomes all researchers from MET to do their tissue histology work using the modern histotechnology equipment  and microscopes. Our technicians will help you with technical issues and can do the tissue processing, staining and analysis whenever possible. HF encourages to use digital microscope and whole slide scanning to generate material for your quantitative scientific analyses.


Histology Facility (HF) is located in the Arvo building, 3rd floor (E-wing, laboratories and microscope rooms).

After training by our personnel, researchers can do basic laboratory tasks themselves. These include the use of microtomes, cryomicrotomes, tissue processors, microscopes and paraffin embedding. HF staff operate the specific equipment and employ services that we offer, please inquire!
