Histological Assessment Service in Animal Models of Stroke

Histopathology is an important technique for evaluating pathological changes in animal models. In stroke models, histopathology is often used to examine nerve damage in tissue sections of the animal's brain or spinal cord. Histology aims to study stroke characterization through microscopic examination of tissue morphology. In pathology, tissue samples examined under a microscope are usually the result of fixation, clearing/embedding, and sectioning following surgery, biopsy, or autopsy. Cryostat processing can be used when fast results are required (such as during surgery) or when fixing the sample would cause damage to target structures (such as lipids or certain antigens).
