The modern laboratory is well-equipped laboratory and offers a comprehensive repertoire of histological services, including tissue processing, embedding, and cutting of clinical or animal material. The laboratory is equipped with two auto-stainers for immunohistochemical detection, and a semi-automatic tissue arrayer for constructing tissue microarrays from clinical or research material.

Whilst the facility’s priority is to Breast Cancer Now scientists, they also offer advice in histopathological technique to researchers within the ICR.
