Morphological Phenotype Analysis (FENO)

The great surge in numbers of mutant mice has made efficient phenotyping a necessity in order to find and adequately describe the changes caused by the genetic manipulation. Pathology is a major and integral part of the phenotyping process.

With support from WCN, The Unit for Morphological Phenotype Analysis (FENO) was established as a competence and service facility for mouse pathology at KI in 2002, and as such specializing in the pathology of genetically engineered mice.

FENO offers

  • Processing of tissues, embedding, sectioning, staming, scanning and stainings, and qualified pathologic analysis, separate or in combination.
  • Immunohistochemistry on frozen/paraffin embedded tissues.
  • Slide digitalisation and image analysis.
  • Advice on protocols: animal selection and tissue sampling, breeding schemes.
  • A full necropsy and histopathology service to analyse and describe pathological changes in tissues and organs - with attention for species differences.
  • Microscopic analysis of prenatal lethal mutants.

We have a fixed pricelist. Please check the iLab sample submission request form for pricelist.
