Microscopy/Histology

The Microscopy/Histology Facility houses several microscopes and other similar imaging instruments to make sure that they are available for users. Instruments are maintained and users are trained by Jim Janoso. 

Users, prospective users, and other curious parties are encouraged to contact Jim with any questions at jajanoso@alaska.edu. 

For histology Pat Rivera is available to assist and train users. We can provide sectioning of paraffin embedded and frozen blocks of tissue, H&E, special stains and  immunohistochemistry treatments to paraffin embedded tissues, frozen sections and fresh slices. Please contact Pat to discuss the details of your request.

All active projects are expected to have a current Project Registration Form

All instruments can be reserved at HaMR.alaska.edu.
