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.
Histology is performed by the service core staff. Training is available so that research staff understand the process. When proposing studies or submitting a grant, plan for a 3 to 5 percent yearly rate increase. Blocks will be returned to the researcher when the project is complete.

|*H&E slide price does not include the processing fee for small runs of 25 or fewer blocks (see next footnote)
|**An additional fee will be assessed for small runs consisting of 25 or fewer blocks or a specialty run. Runs can be combined with other labs to reduce the cost.|
