Field of activity

Anatomopathological and histological analyses in disease settings:

– Tissue preparation.
– Staining and immunohistochemical (IHC) staining.
– Histological analyses, slide techniques.
– Photonic and electronic imaging.

The Histology-Anatomocytopathology Platform comprises several sites. It offers complementary technologies and competencies to cover all cytology/ histology steps, including tissue preparation (cryopreservation, paraffin/resin embedding), histological staining and immunohistochemical staining, and microscopic assessment via photonic and electronic imaging.

To provide its range of expert services and technologies, the platform calls upon a number of sites, associating several Genopole entities, the Genethon laboratories, I-Stem and SABNP, the electron microscopy platform and the anatomical pathology / cytopathology department of the South Ile-de-France Medical Center. This groundbreaking platform, created in collaboration with the hospital, strengthens cooperation in fundamental and clinical research at the biocluster.

    • 5 cryostats,
    • 1 mobile refrigerator.
  • Paraffin embedding (provision, services, training, expertise):
    • 5 microtomes,
    • 2 automated dehydrators,
    • 3 embedding stations.
  • Resin embedding (provision, services, training, expertise):
    • 1 resin block cutter,
    • 1 ultramicrotome.

Staining and IHC staining (collaborations, services, training, expertise):

  • 1 automated smear system,
  • 2 automated stainers,
  • 4 automated IHC staining systems.

Analysis and expertise for stained and immunomarked (collaborations, expertise).
