Molecular Pathology Core

The Molecular Pathology Core offers histology support and expertise in pathology for the laboratories of Sanford Research. The core provides standard and customized histology services including tissue processing and sectioning of paraffin and frozen tissues. The core also provides H&E staining, special histologic stains and immunohistochemical stains. The core also has the ability to create custom tissue microarrays.

Contact Information:
Scientists interested in using the Core will schedule a meeting with Dr. Egland and Claire Evans to discuss the requirements of the project. The core director will place the project in the queue according to the needs of the project.
