Histological assay

Histological assay


  • Pain assessment in patients (pain scales, patient-controlled analgesia, quantitative sensory testing)
  • Models (capsaicin, inflammatory, neuropathic, postoperative, osteoarthritis)
  • Behavioral tests (von Frey filaments, Hargreaves test, pressure test, dynamic weight bearing, whole body vibration, conditional place preference, rotarod, open field, pulse oximeter)
  • Neuronal and immune cell cultures
  • Electrophysiology (skin-nerve preparation, patch-clamp)
  • Calcium imaging, FRET
  • Flow cytometry, magnetic cell sorting
  • In vivo microdialysis
  • Radioimmunoassay, ELISA, radioligand binding, western-blot
  • Histological assays: immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, confocal microscopy
  • DNA/RNA isolation, real-time PCR, in situ hybridization, transfections, gene and mRNA targeting
