Histology and Microscopy Group (HMG)

Manne Research Institute's Histology and Microscopy Group’s mission is to assist investigators by providing high-quality and high-throughput histological services on animal and human tissue, and providing researchers with access to the latest and best technological tools. Through consultations, we assist in developing a research-specific plan to meet the investigator’s histological and microscopy needs.  

The facility also provides technical support and training on our instruments, including microtome, cryostat, confocal laser scanning microscopes, light and fluorescent microscopes, and digital image processing.  

We are located on the 10th floor of the Simpson Querry Biomedical Research Building.
