short CV

We are histotechnologists.

We are experts in transforming fresh and fixed biological samples (cells, tissue biopsies, organs, organisms) into thin sections, to be viewed under an optical microscope.

The techniques to achieve this are various and choice of the most appropriate one will depend on your goal and will vary according to the type of sample.

Be sure to consult with us prior to conducting your histology/pathology-dedicated experiments.
