This section encompasses:

  • sample fixation, post fixation processing
  • paraffin embedding
  • paraffin block sectioning
  • H&E staining
  • Other colorimetric staining (on request)

Two tiers of service provision:

  1. Service provided by an experienced technician for a fee (the availability of this service has been re-established from March 2016 thanks to a Flinders University FMNHS Infrastructure grant)
  2. Self-service (utilising bench space and consumables in the facility on a cost-recovery basis) after satisfactory training.



Sample considerations:

Tissue processing takes time; we hope this paraffin flowchart (PDF 150KB) will help you in planning your experiments.
Training can only take place with a fixed specimen that you bring to the facility.
