General times:

  • Paraffin process and embedding (FFPE) for cassetted tissues: 1-3 days.
  • Paraffin blocks to unstained sections on slides: 1 or more days, depending on # blocks, # slides/block, any special requests and current workload. If you have a deadline, please let us know as soon as possible.
  • Stain slide: H&E- 0.5 day. Histology special stains: weekly depending on submissions.
  • IHC/IF: Immunolocalization projects take longer and depend on whether the antibody has been validated or is being used in a new species.
  • You can embed and section using equipment rental after a brief training.


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.
