Seminar will highlight innovations in tissue sciences research
January 31, 2018
The Department of Pathology and Microbiology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center is hosting a Feb. 19 presentation and open house focused on new technologies at its Tissue Sciences Facility, a state-of-the-art histology laboratory available to University of Nebraska-Lincoln researchers.
Those interested in pursuing biomedical research are encouraged to attend the event from 2-3 p.m. at the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center, Room 0.12.101. Timothy M. Ritty of Pathology Solutions and Roche Tissue Diagnostics will discuss new experimental approaches enabled by advances in immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization, including:
- Multiplexed approaches based on tyramide chemistries.
- Multimer, hapten and amplification detection technologies.
- New chromogenic stains and stain combinations for colocalization.
- Automation technologies for rapid biomarker screening and assay optimization.
- Gene and protein staining on the same slide.
- Detection of single-copy RNA with ACD RNAscopes.
Following the presentation, Ritty will attend an open house at the Tissue Sciences Facility, located in Room 1052 of the Durham Research Center, until 5 p.m. The facility provides researchers and industrial users a comprehensive range of pathological techniques, including routine and custom histology, special staining, immunohistochemistry and imagining techniques.
