IHC Validation Service

  • In order to successfully and consistently perform routine immunohistochemical staining, it is critical to develop an optimal protocol for a specific antibody. Our IHC Validation Service is designed to validate an antibody and develop a standard staining protocol for a specific antibody therefore reaching the maximal signal to noise ratio.

IHC Routine Service

  • We perform routine immunohistochemistry (IHC), immunofluorescence (IF) and immunocytochemistry (ICC) staining using our well-established, optimized antibody staining protocols on formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections, fresh frozen sections, cultured cells and whole mount samples.


Collagen IV




Heme Oxygenase-1





IHC Double Label Service

  • We also perform double labeling immunohistochemistry (IHC) and immunofluorescence (IF) services to localize two proteins simultaneously on the same tissue section.

Iba1 green & b-Amyloid red


Apoptosis Detection Service

  • Apoptosis, also called programmed cell death, is involved in many physiological processes by which unwanted or useless cells are eliminated during development and other normal biological processes. Cells undergoing apoptosis show characteristic morphological and biochemical features. There are many methods involved in the detection of apoptosis. We offer TUNEL staining for the detection of apoptosis in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues, cryostat sections, cell suspensions, cytospins, and cell cultures.

  • TUNEL Staining: Label apoptotic cells in research samples by modifying DNA fragments utilizing terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT) for detection of apoptotic cells by specific staining. The end products can be enzyme end labeling or fluorescent end labeling.


Whole Mount IHC Service

  • We perform routine Whole Mount IHC staining using standard immunofluorescent and immunoperoxidase methods. We can also help to develop project specific staining protocols according to client's requirements.


Brain-Array Service

  • Embedding of multiple brains in one paraffin block

  • Sectioning at 5um, 10um, 25um and 50um thickness depending on your specific need

  • Perform H&E staining, Nissl staining, special staining and IHC staining

  • Imaging analysis and stereology analysis

Advantage: Allow simultaneously processing, sectioning and staining all experimental and control brains under same condition therefore reducing experimental variability.



Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) Service

  • Complete TEM service.

  • TEM thick sectioning and toluidine blue staining.

  • TEM thin sectioning and contrast staining.

  • Negative Staining for viral & bacterial detection & mycoplasma contamination analysis.

  • TEM Immunogold Labeling service for protein sub-cellular localization.
