Pathology is the branch of science dedicated to the study of the structural, biochemical, and functional changes in cells, tissues, and organs that underlie disease. The Histopathology Unit offers support and expertise in a range of services from paraffin embedding and tissue sections to histochemical staining, research and diagnostic immunohistochemistry (IHC) testing, antibody validation, in situ hybridisation techniques (including mRNA in situ detection using RNAScopeÒ), and tissue microarray generation. Other value-added services offered by the Unit’s highly skilled technicians include laser capture microdissection, slide digitalisation, image analysis, and quantification. The Unit also collaborates with CNIO researchers in the histopathological characterisation of animal models of disease, providing them with the necessary expert pathological advice. Finally, the Unit offers its portfolio of services to other institutions, including hospitals, research centres and private companies.
