Histology and Genetics Laboratory
Histology methodologies are applied for routine maturation studies, mainly in fish and invertebrate commercial species. Main equipment includes the necessary items (microtome, stoves, glassware and chemicals) for inclusion, slicing and manual coloration of the samples, using paraffin.

Genetic methodologies (electrophoresis and DNA), for stock assessment and population discrimination, are now being implement. Main equipment includes refrigerated ultra-centrifuge, ultra-freezer, PCR mini-cycler and other protein and DNA electrophoresis equipment.
