Management of samples

The GIGA Histology and immunohistology facility is available to researches interested in producing samples for frozen or paraffin-embedded sections of tissues, coloration, immunostaining or in situ hydridisation.

 

The treatments are :

*Embedding into Paraffin with the Processor for paraffin infiltration of tissues (ASP300S, Leica) and the tissue embedding machine (EG1150, Leica)

This includes stepwise dehydration in a graded alcohol series, transfer to xylol, as well as paraffin, sample orientation and embedding;

It is also possible to realise the embedding with a new protocole without xylol

*Cryoembedding
