Histology is the most common method for tissue analysis, utilizing various techniques for labeling cellular components that require practice and patience.  Optimized workflows from start to finish, joining manual prep to fully automated imaging and analysis, can reduce variability among samples and increase throughput.   

This application guide presents the best practices for sample preparation and staining methods. Several colorimetric and fluorescent assays are described incorporating automated image acquisition and analyses using BioTek’s high-content imaging instruments to characterize staining expression and improve the scientific research experience.
