About Histopathology & Tissue Shared Resource (HTSR)

Located at Georgetown University Medical Center, we provide comprehensive histology, pathology and imaging services. Our histology services includes tissue fixation/processing, embedding, microtomy and staining services for both frozen and paraffin embedded tissues. We support colorimetric and fluorescent IHC staining for established antibodies as well as for the development of protocols for new antibodies. The IHC lab also supports TUNEL labeling and novel labeling techniques. High throughput tissue processors and autostainers for both H&E and IHC facilitate the production of highly precise and accurate tissue samples and stains combined with rapid turnaround. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
