Epistem provides quality contract histology and immunohistochemistry (IHC) services to global biopharmaceutical companies who do not have either the capacity or capabilities in-house.

We have held GCLP accreditation since 2010 and undertake clinical, preclinical and non-regulatory research.  We have a full quality management system in place from sample receipt to slide quality control.  We are fully licensed by the HTA under the auspices of Manchester University.

Epistem can take on work from any stage of the histological process from fixation of fresh tissues to image analysis of IHC-labelled slides.

Working closely with clients all over the world, our approach is collaborative and bespoke to help you get the answers you need.
