The Stereology Research Laboratory was established in 1987 when Hans Jørgen G. Gundersen was elected professor in Stereology. This laboratory has developed almost all existing design-based methods used at laboratories worldwide, and a number of leading international journals has emphasized that only qualitative structural papers using these methods will be published in their journals. In 2001, Jens R. Nyengaard became head of the laboratory.
Our primary aim is to develop and practice the use of tissue quantification in biomedicine. An important factor is the sampling of the tissue from the time at which it is removed from a human being or an animal and throughout the whole histological process, i.e. the macroscopical sectioning, dehydration, microscopical sectioning and staining. At the laboratories we are able to make visualization by different light and elect ron microscopical techniques.
