Supporting High Quality Experimental Design and Delivery

Analytical Services

Cell and Tissue Characterisation

Explora Bioscience offers a comprehensive range of analytical services to support the development of advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMP), Including:

  • DNA genotyping
  • cDNA library construction and sequencing
  • RNA extraction and gene expression analysis by real-time
  • Protein extraction and characterization by 1D- and 2D-PAGE with MS/MS identification

Histological and Microscopy services

Our histological and microscopy services cover everything from tissue harvesting and processing to routine or special staining as well as morphological analysis with state-of-the-art imaging equipment.  Through varied histological techniques, our researchers can visually examine DNA synthesis, RNA/microRNA expression, and protein translation in tissues and cells in different tissues and experimental models. Moreover, we can use endogenous cell markers to help distinguish subsets of putative stem cells and stem cell niches.

Routine stains

  • Haematoxylin and Eosin stain
  • Masson’s Trichrome stain
  • Orcein stain
  • Giemsa stain
  • Reticulin
  • Verhoff’s- van Giemsa stain
  • Qualitative analysis
  • Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
  • Immunofluorescence (IF)
  • 2D Image analysis
  • Compare tissue sections: area measurement, distances, angles
