Histology, Biochemistry, and Molecular Imaging (HBMI) Core
The primary mission of the HBMI Core is to provide efficient, high quality, and cost-effective histological, biochemical, cellular, and molecular services to investigators throughout the Center for Musculoskeletal Research using both tissue and cellular models. The HBMI Core also provides cutting-edge histomorphometric and molecular imaging and analysis services and resources as well as consultation and training in the use of primary cell culture models and small animal surgical models
- Paraffin and frozen tissue processing, embedding, and sectioning.
- Histological staining.
- Guidance and support for standardized Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and In Situ Hybridization (ISH).
- Optimization of new IHC and ISH protocols.
- Guidance and support for histomorphometric and molecular imaging analysis.
- Development and support of various primary cell culture models and biochemical assays.
- Training and support in the performance of a variety of small animal musculoskeletal surgical models.
