Turnaround Time

Submissions are handled first come, first served with every attempt to have work finished as soon as possible. Please let us know about deadlines so we can try to meet them. Additional fees may apply.

General times:

  • Cassetted tissues for paraffin process and embedding (FFPE): 1-3 days.
  • Paraffin blocks to unstained sections on slides: 1 or more days, depending on # blocks, # slides/block, and any special requests (multiple sections/slide, multiple blocks/slide)
  • Stain slide: H&E- 0.5 day. Special stains are performed done weekly to biweekly. IHC can take longer depending on whether the antibody is under development or has been routinely used.
  • You can do many of these steps yourself including embedding and sectioning using our self-service equipment rental.

Consultations/Publications/Grants

Staff members are happy to discuss any aspect of your project including do-it-yourself aspects and routine versus personalized services. Assistance is also available with photography for publications or grants.
