Pathology is the branch of science devoted to the study of the structural, biochemical and functional changes in cells, tissues and organs underlying disease. The Histopathology Unit offers support and expertise through a full set of services ranging from paraffin embedding and tissue sections to histochemical stains, research and diagnostic immunohistochemistry (IHC) testing, antibody validation, in situ hybridisation techniques (including in situ detection of mRNAs by RNAScope), as well as the generation of tissue microarrays. Furthermore, the Unit offers other value-added services assisted by a team of highly specialised technicians, such as: laser-capture microdissection; slide digitalisation; image analysis; and quantification. The Unit collaborates with CNIO researchers in the histopathological characterisation of animal models of disease, providing them with the required pathology expertise. Also, the Unit offers its portfolio of services to other institutions, including hospitals, research centres and private companies.
