Help fund a vital piece of digital pathology equipment

Your donation will fund a new hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stainer for The Royal Marsden, which will help clinicians diagnose patients faster.

Helping more patients receive their test results as quickly as possible

The H&E stainer automates the sample staining process – this makes cells visible to detect any abnormalities that may indicate cancer. Crucially, this machine runs overnight and doesn’t require constant supervision, freeing up the team’s capacity, while producing high-quality stains that can then be digitally scanned. 

This means that patients can get their test results as quickly as possible, increasing the likelihood of diagnosing cancer early and ultimately, saving lives.
