The equipment of our histology laboratories allows the making of plastic and paraffin preparations from soft and hard tissue.
In this laboratory, plastic preparations can be made from non-decalcified hard tissue. Beside slices, grindings with or without metal implants can be prepared. By different histological stainings, several tissue types including mineralized tissue can be highlighted.
Histological stainings for light microscopy
Movat Pentachrome staining for overview and differentiation between mineralized and non-mineralized cartilage tissue
The equipment of the immunohistological laboratory allows the preparation of paraffin slices from decalcified hard and soft tissue. Several staining methods allow the characterization of different tissue and cell types.
For detection of proteins by antigen-antibody reaction, the Avidin-Biotin method (peroxidase, alkaline phosphatase) is used. Beside several established antigen detection protocols, new protocols are established depending on the research Projects.
