The MD Anderson Bone Histomorphometry Core Laboratory provides histomorphometric analyses of non-decalcified bone specimens. Bone specimens are processed for histology and can be stained for static and dynamic histomorphometric analyses (Osteomeasure or the Bioquant Osteo II system). The core can provides slides, data, training and advice for experimental design and result interpretation. Services are performed on a subsidized fee-for-service basis.
