The Histology and Imaging Core staff are currently working remotely to the fullest extent possible but under new guidelines issued by the University we are able to partially staff
the lab in person to support essential research. Our current staffing is limited and highly restricted so our turn-around time for project completion
is longer than normal. If you are interested in any of our services or have a question about your samples please contact Brian Johnson for more information.
Under the mandated “Stay Home, Stay Healthy proclamation the Office of Research has adopted criteria for certain “in-person” research to continue. To see if your research meets
these criteria please visit the Office Of Research Website, https://www.washington.edu/research/
Please keep in mind this is a fluid situation and can change at any time.
We look forward to working with you under normal operations soon.
We provide efficient, high-quality solutions for your research needs including:
- Image analysis
- Quantitative microscopy
- Luminex cell based multiplex assay
- Comparative pathology consultation
We employ extensive experience, expertise and state of the art high-throughput instrumentation across all platforms in our facility. This core is open to all investigators, including; UW
and their affiliates, commercial and not-for-profit biotechnology companies, and other academic institutions. Through our partnership with the Comparative Pathology Program (CPP)
we have access to experienced comparative pathologists who are available for research consultation and collaboration.
The HIC utilizes automated immunohistochemistry stainers which provide efficiency and consistency as well as standardization of protocols across studies of all sizes.
Please review the list of over 100 antibodies that have been optimized in our core. We are now pleased to offer additional high throughput automated IHC staining on our new Leica Bond Rx platform. Please contact Brian Johnson for more information
Invitrogen Multiplex (Luminex) Panel Configurator & Selection Tool
Easily and conveniently design your own custom Invitrogen multiplex immunoassay for protein quantitation detection using Luminex® technology. Select a species, panel type, and any number of available targets, and have the panel built and validated for you. This tool features our Invitrogen ProcartaPlex Assays (formerly eBioscience) and the Invitrogen legacy Luminex Assays.
