Research

In addition to human pathological investigations, we are able to process and interpret samples from a wide variety of experimental models, particularly rodents but also some in vitro cellular preparations.

For many years we have worked with scientists in some of the principal UK Research Institutes such as Imperial College, University College London, the Sanger Institute in Cambridge and Experimental Histopathology at the Francis Crick Institute in London.

Toxicological and experimental analysis of mouse tissues is a particular specialty, Prof Stamp having over 30 years’ experience in this area.

In addition to conventional histopathological techniques and histochemistry we can apply immunohistochemistry to murine tissues and cellular preparations and have access to additional techniques such as RNAscope, Laser Capture Microdissection, image analysis and immunofluorescence using a state-of-the-art LED 4 channel IF microscope.

We are also able to extract nucleic acids and proteins from tissues and undertake basic analytical techniques including Western blotting and immunoelectrophoresis.
