Cells under a microscope

Histology Core Facility

The Histology Core Facility provides NYITCOM researchers with services, including sectioning, embedding and staining of biological samples, that enable the study of biological samples at the microscopic level. The facility contributes to studies ranging from analysis of the diets of dinosaurs to the examination of the expression and function of proteins in normal and disease tissues and cells. Student access is limited to students participating in related faculty-led research projects.

In order to submit specimens to the core, please fill out the Histology Request Form. Ensure all required fields are completed. If this is your first time using the core, we strongly recommend scheduling a meeting with us to discuss the scope of your project and your specific needs. If you are interested in receiving training, please email the core director.

  • Leica Microtomes (including a cryomicrotome)
  • Leica HistoCore
  • Arcadia Embedding Stations
  • Sakura Tissue-Tek VIP Tissue Processor
