The Core Service provides services to FLI researchers for standard histological techniques, including processing of tissues, sectioning and preparation of samples for the EM. EM service for external users is available upon arrangement.

Pathology assessment of sections is supported by an experienced pathologist, who may be contacted in advance directly if help is desired.
