This is the second week of the high school internship program collaborating with WPI. Their task is to create 25 perfect slides, 5 different stains from 5 different tissues. Each of the tissues are picked by them and must be grossed, cassetted, processed, embedded, cut, stained and microscopic pictures are taken by them. They In the first week the interns learned all about safety, grossing, processing and embedding. This week they have been practicing on the microtome. They have been given 12 tissues to practice facing, sectioning, laying on the bath, separating sections and section placement on slides. Tomorrow I will explain and show them how to do H&E staining on some of their cut tissues. We will discuss the elements of each of their tissues grossly and microscopically so that they can choose their next 4 special stains. After their tissues are all stained, they will write short descriptions of each tissue to highlight it’s unique composition. Follow this program with me for the next 6 weeks.
We have an extensive array of histology knowledge, from years of working in clinical, research and academia histology labs. Our techniques have been modified to give you excellent results and turnaround times. The desire to help your causes, through research advance faster through the end stage of a histology service drives our success. We understand that your research is the most important thing in the world and our job is to make your life easy by doing everything right on our end within a reasonable time.
Do to this, we have built our lab for efficiency and quality. All specimens come in and leave in a circular fashion. This eliminates redundancy and waste by creating checks and balances that make a lean lab. We believe, it’s our job to make you look good.
Histologistics is a full service histology lab. We provide excellent quality histology to clinical facilities, veterinarians and researchers . We can help you with anything. Please contact us with your histology needs.
