The Tissue Embedding and Histology Unit (TEHU) offers a full service in paraffin infiltration of tissues, tissue embedding, as well as hands-on training for users of the equipment, including the rotary microtome and cryostat. We also offer tissue sectioning from paraffin-embedded samples on request. This service is offered to all research groups of the CMMC as well as other researchers on the campus of the University of Cologne.
A first introduction and training session in tissue sectioning (frozen or paraffin) is mandatory for new users to assure proper handling of the service equipment. Further, to guarantee an efficient operation of this histological unit, all users are asked to follow the guidelines and protocols.
Keeping in mind the current SARS-CoV-2 regulations we implemented the following additional safety measurements for all TEHU users.
