Core Equipment

Histology Laboratories


Lab E802 / E814 / B815a

Two histology labs are available in the DBMR. The labs are equipped to embed tissues in paraffin, and to prepare cryo- and paraffin-sections.

  • Location of the labs:
    MEM-building, Murtenstrasse 35, Lab E802, rooms E814 and B815a.
    In addition, sections of tissues embedded in plastic (MMA) can be prepared in lab E802.
  • The labs are accessable to all members of the DBMR. Users from groups outside the DBMR are welcome, if time and space permit.
  • The use of the equipment is free of charge, but it is expected that users provide their own disposables (glass slides, disposable blades, etc).

First time users, or if advice and help is required, please contact: Claudia Güttinger
