Quantitative Bone Histomorphometry Core
The QBHC provides embedding of undecalcified bone samples in a methyl methacrylate polymer suitable to many modes of staining as well as immunohistochemistry. We embed femora, tibiae and vertebrae, and can work with you if your needs include other skeletal elements.
Thin Sectioning Equipment
Our facility houses a Leica RM2265 fully motorized rotary microtome.
The Histology and Correlative Microscopy Core imaging facility affords us the capability to image in high resolution in both brightfield and fluorescence modes. Whole bone images can be produced at a magnification of 20x or higher.
- Toluidine blue
- Masson’s trichrome
- We can work with you on other staining protocols as per your needs.
As we are located within the Histology and Correlative Microscopy Core facility, we can provide quantitative analysis of bone features using BIOQUANT Osteo Measure.
