The study, characterization and analysis of morphological and functional changes in cells and tissues is a very relevant discipline not only for the diagnosis in clinical pathology but also for a better understanding of the cause and mechanisms in various diseases studied by both basic and preclinical research. The mission of Image and Immunohistochemistry Laboratory Core is to provide a centralized service dedicated to assisting with the highest quality histology, immunohistochemistry and imaging equipment, as well as scientific and technical support to researchers. This core is open to all investigators, including;
IdiPAZ and their affiliates, commercial and notfor- profit biotechnology companies, and other academic institutions.
Specialized staff will support the researchers’ projects by evaluating the user’s needs in histology or immunohistochemistry, help with planning large-scale projects, advice on using the most appropriate techniques for the processing and interpretation of experimental or preclinical research samples results. Trained and authorized users have free access to the platform; IdiPAZ staff in a Do-Ityourself manner and in a fee-for-service manner to all the rest. For service requests, users must refer to the head of the core. To fulfil its mission of enabling cuttingedge research, the facility houses two platforms, Immunohistochemistry and Microscopy Laboratory with state of the art Histology, Immunohistochemistry and Digital Microscopy technologies. The histology laboratory offers advice, protocols and automated high-throughput equipment allowing citospines, fixation techniques (paraffined or freezed), sectioning of tissues (microtomes and cryostats), and classical or advanced immuno-staining (Dako Autostainer). The image laboratory offers users equipment to develop the most demanding processing requirements including conventional microscopy as bright field, phase contrast and fluorescence in addition of confocal and advanced microscopy for in vivo imaging with high-speed camera and incubation system of cultures with temperature and gas control.
During 2016, Image unit maintained their quality standards in order to help users to get the excellence in their research by supporting projects (publics or privates, national or international grants), scientific dissemination (thesis) and high impact international publications. In addition core facility joins forces with other core facilities (Cell Culture, Biobank, Experimental Surgery...), to create a teamwork to combine technologies and applications for exchanging knowledge and expertise and working on common strategies for training and projects support. In the last year, we have extended the number of users inside Hospital La Paz (HULP, clinical and basic researchers), associated IdiPAZ groups (UAM), as well as other research groups (UCM, CSIC etc).
