The Department of Pathology at Indiana University School of Medicine partners with IU Health hospitals to offer resources and support biomedical researchers through the Immunohistochemistry (IHC) Research Core. Projects supported by this facility include histologic and immunohistochemical labeling of cells or tissue sections as well as collaborations with surgical pathologists.
Information on methods and costs are provided to researchers upon request to assist in writing grant budgets. Pricing is competitive and varies depending on the type of service, volume of specimens and need for reagents or human resources. State-of-the-art equipment is supported by American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP)-certified professionals.
Consultation with the center’s research specialist or faculty is available as part of any new experiment. The service provided can apply both traditional methods and more recent technical developments to meet the investigator’s needs.
