Recent News:

With the closure of the ACC Histology Core, the Molecular Pathology and Imaging Core (MPIC) is pleased to announce that AFCRI members who have been using the ACC Histology Core will be able to receive histology services through the MPIC at the same discounted prices as members of the Center for Molecular Studies in Digestive and Liver Diseases, effective May 1, 2017.  Other ACC members who had been using the ACC Histology Core are welcome to use the MPIC for their histology needs at our normal, competitive prices.  These full and discounted prices for histology services are detailed on the “Charges” page below. 

We are excited at this opportunity to offer MPIC’s high level of service to a larger portion of the University of Pennsylvania community. Please contact Adam Bedenbaugh, blakebe@pennmedicine.upenn.edu, for additional information or with questions on how to submit an order.
