Histology Unit

Histology Unit

Histology is the science that studies all about the cells at the microscopic level. The first histological investigations were possible by the year 1600, when the microscope was used for anatomical studies. The optical instrumentation currently available allows a more accurate observation of all types of samples, from the macroscopic structural organization to an observer intracellular level.

The Histology Unit at the Cardiovascular Genetics Centre is equipped with the necessary tools to carry out a wide range of histochemical and immunohistochemical analysis. Also, we can mark single, double, and triple, with optical or fluorescent disclosed, depending on th
e requirements.

We are currently carrying out research focused on cardiac disorders characterized by structural alterations associated with sudden cardiac death. Among cardiac pathologies under study are hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy, and arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.
