How to use the core
To reserve time on the equipment, please sign up on worksheets located in the core. Potential users must be trained by Histopathology Core staff and demonstrate competence with the equipment before use. All users must complete a user form and the charge sheet located in the core. To submit histology work, please fill out the work request database form (provided on a computer in the histology room). To submit paraffin or cryosections for immunocytochemistry or in situ hybridization, antibody or probe information needs to be included on the histology work request form. The core provides all general supplies. Special stains, antibodies, probes, and associated reagents must be provided by the principal investigator. Service charges and equipment charges are found here (for histological services).
