At Aquila, we offer a range of routine through to advanced histological techniques for specialised projects, including tissue processing to wax, single and multiplex immunohistochemistry (IHC)/ immunofluorescence (IF), slide scanning and image analysis.

Our image analysis services are ideal for clients working in pharmaceutical R&D, pathology review and biomarker research.

We can co-localise multiple markers within the same samples, allowing you to extract more information whilst conserving tissue.

Our digital slide scanning services use The Vectra® Polaris™, generating high quality images of haematoxylin and eosin stain, IHC, IF and multiplex images.

In addition, we have a wealth of experience in providing IHC/IF screening of normal and diseased tissue, using our ever-growing range of validated and optimised antibodies.

Through our partners, such as OracleBio, we can provide precision histopathology image analysis services for target quantification of:

  • IHC
  • In situ hybridisation (ISH), as well as
  • Immunofluorescence (IF) marker staining in cells and tissues.
