The GIGA Immunohistology supplies a technical service for samples at any steps of the histological process (embedding, section, staining, immunostaing and digitalization).
In order to address specific customer requests, the team has developed and optimized paraffin sectioning of hard tissues (bone and cartilage tissue) which allows high quality morphology and observation of areas of interest such as joints. This has opened a new field of expertise in the facility and enabled strong collaboration with the rheumatology and the dentistry departments as well as with a private company active in the field of bone therapy.
To improve the quality of the services, the facility is implementing the traceability of samples and techniques by writing specific forms and procedures. Moreover, the facility has acquired 2 new pieces of equipment - a “PrintMate As Cassette Printer” and a “SlideMate Slide Printer” - to print a unique identification code on slides and cassettes.
