Research Core Labs

The TPL a core facility to enhance translational research in the UNC School of Medicine and is administered by the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. The Laboratory is designed to qualitatively and quantitatively analyze fresh, frozen and formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissues and cell lines using morphology-based assays for DNA, RNA, and proteins.

The An­im­al His­to­path­o­logy Core Fa­cil­ity, run by a board-cer­ti­fied veter­in­ary patho­lo­gist, of­fers high-qual­ity pre­par­a­tion and pro­cessing of frozen and fixed tis­sue sec­tions, along with edu­ca­tion re­gard­ing ap­pro­pri­ate har­vest­ing, fix­a­tion, Immunology, and se­lec­tion of his­to­lo­gic­al pro­ced­ures.

The MSL is within the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and serves as a core facility for the UNC School of Medicine. The Laboratory provides light microscopy and electron microscopy services to UNC researchers and UNC Hospitals. The MSL also offers laser capture microdissection and computer-assisted morphometry.

This core facility offers research investigators the availability of clinical-laboratory tests for animals. The tests include blood chemistry, urinalysis, and hematology. The Laboratories also offer studies of gene expression.

This core facility within the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine produces and purifies oligonucleotides for use by investigators in genetic research experiments.
