Anatomic Services:

1. Histology services include preparation of tissue specimens for histopathological review:

  • Troubleshooting of sample collection and tissue processing with EPA staff and pathologists. 
  • Paraffin block embedding.
  • H&E staining using automated stainer and coverslipping instruments. 
  • A multiple of in house histochemical and immunohistochemical stains. 
  • Optional review of histopathology by a board-certified pathologist.
