Histology Core

The WSU Spokane Histology CORE provides high quality, research grade histology and pathology. We can help with all steps from sample collection to data analysis. Contact us before you start your experiment so we can help you integrate histology with any other tissue dependent assays you intend to perform.

Please complete our sample submission form and deliver it alongside your samples.


Note: These rates are currently being evaluated and may increase as of July 1, 2020. Finalized rates will be announced soon. As a reminder, it is best practice to plan for a 3 to 5 percent yearly rate increase when proposing studies and submitting grants.
