The Pathology Core Facility (PCF) is a centralized, comprehensive, core laboratory providing histology, immunohistochemistry, molecular analysis and extraction, and microscopic evaluation services for human tissue-based studies. We facilitate basic, translational, and clinical research at Northwestern University, with laboratories in downtown Chicago, Illinois.
We are College of American Pathologists (CAP) accredited and CLIA certified with the capability to serve integral marker studies that require biomarker-based treatment arm assignment. In addition to core laboratory services, we perform procurement of fresh biospecimens for clinical trials and biobanking.
