Histological Analyses

Pancreas: Stereological assessment of beta cell mass

Gubra has ample experienced with histological and stereological assessment of basically any component of the pancreas, from endocrine to exocrine features. A in-housed develop sampling method (see video) provides the basis for all our investigations.

Kidney: AI assisted quantification of glomerulosclerosis

At Gubra, we have developed AI-assisted detection of glomeruli in Periodic Schiff-acid stained sections for subsequent quantification of glomerulosclerosis. Histopathological scoring can be performed to assist the quantitative output.

Laser Capture Microdissection

See our movie about how Laser capture microdissection (LCM) enables you to fish out specific cells from heterogeneous organs and gives you a level of precision not possible with manual extraction methods.

An introduction to stereology

Stereology is a practical technique for extracting quantitative information about a 3D structure from measurements made on 2D histological section. It produces results that are unbiased, efficient, and more reliable than other ad hoc quantitative analyses
