The mission of the Northwestern University Mouse Histology & Phenotyping Laboratory is to assist primary investigators and scientists with standard and customized research-specific histology services. The laboratory provides comprehensive histology services for a wide variety of tissues (i.e., mouse, rat, sheep, pig, zebrafish) for routine histology and immunohistochemistry. Pathologist consultation can also be provided to help develop strategies to elucidate phenotypes and gain mechanistic insight regarding the biologic actions of the targeted molecule(s) or the toxicity of exogenously administered substances. In addition, the laboratory provides training opportunities for learning histology techniques and phenotyping analysis.
