HiLAPS platform consists of four core-facility units with histotechnology, digital slide scanning, laboratory animal pathology and tissue analysis expertise. We provide joint services for tissue processing, digitization and analysis.
FCLAP offers veterinary pathology expertise for laboratory animals, histotechnological services and immunohistochemistry; in conjunction, the division of veterinary anatomy operates the laser microdissection instrument.
TPHU specializes in routine paraffin sectioning and staining services in Meilahti, as well as immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization for slides, wholemount samples and free-floating sections.
FIMM provides fluorescence and high-resolution slide scanning and solutions for digitized slide management, focusing on translational research based on computerized analysis of digitized tissue samples, multiplexed immunohistochemistry and crosslinked patient data.
BI supplies bright field whole slide digital scanning services, manages histology lab facilities and services in Viikki, and specializes in CNS image investigation, neuronal stereology consulting and neuronal morphology analysis (contact: mikko.airavaara(at)helsinki.fi).
