Tissue processing to get formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded blocks will be done by an automatic system. After cutting them with a microtome or frozen sections with a cryostat (Leica CM1900), upon request, basic histological stainings will be done by an automatic system or by hand.Several basic and more special stainings are available:

  • Hematoxylin-eosin (HE)
  • Cresyl violet
  • Toluidine blue
  • Weigerts’ Van Gieson
  • Congo red
  • Periodic acid Schiff (PAS)
  • Alcian blue-PAS
  • Methyl green-pyronin (MGP)
  • Iron stain
  • Jone’s silver methenamine
  • Gomor’s silver
  • Fontana-Masson
  • Verhoeff
  • Leder
  • May-Grunwald
