Histology and Comparative Pathology


The Histotechnology and Comparative Pathology Facility provides comprehensive histology and histopathology support to Einstein investigators and the Animal Housing and Studies Facility. The facility performs most aspects of tissue evaluation, from necropsy to the final histological diagnostic evaluation. We support quality translational research by evaluating how the genetic background, environment and sex of the animals affect the study results or gene phenotype. The goal of the facility is to provide a high-quality histology service as well as to be a resource for understanding and translating in vivo data.
