PsychoGenics’ capabilities include standard histochemical staining as well as sophisticated multiple immunohistochemical labeling. We offer a wide range of tissue staining, like Nissl, H&E, Campbell Switzer Silver Staining, Bielschowsky Silver Staining, Thioflavin S, Congo red, DAPI, and many others.

PsychoGenics utilizes countless antibodies alone or in combination to enable comprehensive analysis of disease tissue and treatment. A list of antibodies that are validated and on stick is shown here. Image sets for validated markers in various disease models can be found at their description.
