Laboratory of LASER Microdissection


- Staining of tissue sections by common histological dyes

- Dissection of selected cells from tissue section and its transfer to microcaps followed by nucleic acids isolation

- Sterile dissection of alive cells from cell cultures for subsequent cultivation

- Creating of photo documentation of complete microdissection process for each sample


- This laboratory is concerned with identifi cation and subsequent isolation of single cells from tissue sections and cell cultures

- Applied system allows work with fresh samples as well as with archive sections covered by medium

- Obtained samples serve for study of gene expression

- Additionally, used device enable to isolate concrete cell from heterogenic cell cultures and its subsequent cultivation
