About Us

VitroVivo Biotech is a leading company specializing in the development and commercialization of innovative histological products and services. Established in 2012 by a group of expert biomedical scientists, we are located in the I-270 corridor of Montgomery County, Maryland.

Our mission at VitroVivo is to provide cutting-edge expertise in histology and molecular histopathology to accelerate scientific discovery for biomedical research institutions, biotech enterprises, and pharmaceutical companies. Our commitment is to make tissues, cells, genes, and molecules visible.

With state-of-the-art technology and equipment, we offer a complete range of histology and molecular histopathology services, including tissue processing, embedding, sectioning, histochemical staining, immunostaining, FISH/ISH, and expert evaluation by our certified pathologists. Our laser capture microdissection (LCM) services provide our customers with more power, precision, and effectiveness in isolating specific cells from a heterogeneous cell population under microscopic visualization for gene expression analysis and other biomedical study purposes. Our service team includes leading international experts on LCM, board-certified pathologists, and molecular histopathology experts.

At VitroVivo Biotech, we offer 12 product categories for histology staining kits, molecular histopathology kits, and reagents that are available for purchase. Our product distribution covers not only the US but also Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

We are proud to have served numerous clients and customers, including many labs of the National Institute of Health (NIH), prominent research institutions, universities, biotech companies, and pharmaceutical companies. At VitroVivo, we are dedicated to accelerating scientific discovery and providing innovative histological products and services to meet the needs of our valued clients and customers.
