VitroVivo Biotech is supporting histology research with its range of services and products since the company has been founded, back in 2012. The ompany is focused on the mission of constant improvement and being engaged in the development and commercialization of the innovation of histological product and services.
In this spirit, the routine histology staining service is in the core of VitroVivo interest. This is an important method of tissue and cell structure visualization that is difficult to obtain without staining, as there are very small differences in the refractive indices of cells component parts. The staining itself makes the process much easier if just not possible, as by staining desired tissue sections, scientists and pathologists are able to observe tissue morphology or to look for the presence or prevalence of particular cell types, structures or even micro-organisms.
The routine histology service included in VitroVivo Biotech catalog contains: tissue trimming, processing and embedding in paraffin blocks; sectioning paraffin-embedded tissues; mounting sections on positively charged slides or any other treated slides of choice; and last but not least, application of a routine H&E stain, that refers to the hematoxylin and eosin stain, but also other special staining such as Alcian Blue Hematoxylin/Orange G or Oil Red O stain, just to name a few.
Another extremely efficient way of cell detection is the use of streptavidin conjugate. It has a higher binding affinity for biotin and is utilized to detect a variety of proteins, protein motifs, nucleic acids and other molecules in common research application, for example, immunohistochemistry, tetramer staining or ELISA. The streptavidin conjugate that can be found in VitroVivo products catalog can bind to four moles of biotin per mole of protein, and its high affinity reaches approximately 10,000-15,000 Da.
Along with the streptavidin conjugate, VitroVivo Biotech offers the cytotoxicity assay kit. The cytotoxicity itself, being the ability of toxicity to cells, can be measured using several methods, including the one in our offer that is based upon the quantitative staining of cellular proteins by sulforhodamine B (SRB) - the methods that give better linearity with cell number and a higher sensitivity. Treating cells with the cytotoxic compound can result in a variety of cell fates: they may undergo necrosis, which can lead to cell lysis, they can also stop active growing and dividing or the cells can activate the process of apoptosis. No matter what the course of research is, our cytotoxicity assay kit is a top quality tool to perform the measurement.
The company offers routine histology service performed by the top scientists, but VitroVivo Biotech also gives its customers the freedom of performing the research on their own, with a support of high-quality products, such as streptavidin conjugate and cytotoxicity assay kit. After all, the aim of VitroVivo is to develop and commercialize the innovative histological products and service, so the company has been doing its best to make this statement alive.
