Positive review received for Immunohistochemistry (IHC):

"We are very satisfied with the service received from the wax-it histology. The mice brain samples were sectioned beautifully and Immunostaining was of superior quality. As I had a nightmare experience with another company where our previous samples were sent, so we were little worried in the beginning. Due to the urgency of some results, we gave them a short deadline, which was perfectly met by their company. I would definitely recommend them for Immunohistochemistry and would like to work with them again."
