We are experts in transforming your fresh and fixed biological samples (cells, tissue biopsies, organs, whole organisms; from human, mouse, rat, fish, mosquitoes et al.) into thin and ultra-thin sections to be viewed under a microscope, optical or electron.
We provide comparative pathology support to scientists investigating animal models of human disease, and scientists/physicians investigating human disease, consisting on gross and microscopic examination with written reports and images, assistance in animal study design, manuscript preparation & grant submission.
Electron microscopy services are provided by Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC). Researchers interested in doing TEM, please contact Ana Biscaia Santos firstname.lastname@example.org in order to initiate communication with IGC.
Equipment on self-service includes the cryostat, the pre-treatment module for antigen retrieval, the slide scanner and the transmission electron microscope (training and validation required).
