(Mouse) Sugar Skull
A fascinating example of the power of H&E staining
This image is of a mouse skull with H&E staining, in both natural and inverted colors. The eyes have been altered where damaged when sectioning.
Our histopathology laboratory is one of the disciplines within Veterinary Diagnostic Services at the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Glasgow. We offer a comprehensive diagnostic and research service; the samples we receive vary from raft cultures to tissues from many species – from the tiniest mosquito eggs to large farm animals and everything in between. We support the University of Glasgow Small Animal Hospital, undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, research institutes here at University of Glasgow, other universities, and commercial laboratories.
Our histology lab is fortunate enough to highlight the work we do through the fascinating images produced through our many staining techniques. This provides a microscopic view into the cellular makeup of many species using whole-slide imaging. Histology is where science meets art.
