SRC Biosciences (Stereology Resource Center, Inc.) is a U.S. corporation founded in 1995 by Peter R. Mouton, Ph.D., Director and Chief Scientific Officer. Dr. Mouton completed a post-doctoral fellowship with Prof. dr. Hans Gundersen in Denmark and is known for helping to launch the Unbiased Stereology movement, a methodology that recognizes routine 2-D images and tissue sections do not provide a true reflection of biological structure, but require their own set of unbiased sampling and unbiased tools (probes) for accurate quantification.

SRC Biosciences customers are bioscientists and biomedical researchers who require quantitative morphometric analysis of biological tissue for their research studies. To date we have provided stereology products and services to thousands of institutions, companies and individuals from the global bioscience community.
The company’s philosophy involves development of high quality, low cost stereology products and services through customer interviews. Development of innovative stereology solutions is through competitive peer-reviewed awards from federal institutions (National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation). The benefits of this technology are spread globally through commercialization and support of stereology-related products and services.
Computerized Stereology Systems. The Stereologer system is the first computerized stereology system specifically developed for highly efficient stereology analysis of stained tissue sections and images. We offer Turnkey Stereologer systems including all required hardware and software. Hardware components for the Stereologer system are met through OEM agreements with manufacturers of microscopes, motorized stage motors, digital camera companies and others. We can also integrate Stereologer into existing systems (e.g., microscopes) including hardware purchased for other stereology software
The Stereologer system was developed with strong and continuing support of the NIH and Florida High Tech Corridor. SRC Biosciences has recently entered into a new partnership with the National Science Foundation to expand the Stereologer with Fully Automatic Stereology Technology (FAST) platform using Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based deep learning. FAST uses the same hardware components (microscope with motorized XYZ stage, digital camera, PC computer/monitor) as all commercially available stereology systems sold by all vendors worldwide.
Contact Us for a customized quote for converting your existing hardware to FAST Stereologer.
Stereology Books. Mouton has written three highly cited peer-reviewed academic textbooks; “Principles and Practices of Unbiased Stereology: An Introduction To Biosciences,” and “Unbiased Stereology: A Concise Guide,” both published by The Johns Hopkins University Press (Baltimore MD; and a book on stereology applications to neural tissue, “Neurostereology,” published by The John Wiley Press (Boston MA).
The Stereology Core Facility provides customers with outsourcing of stereology analysis. We support full service outsourcing for Stereology Core Facility projects through well-established partnerships with professional tissue processing businesses.
Stereology Training. All Stereologer customers receive “Stereology Bootcamp” training to ensure rapid, accurate and efficient data collection. Mouton also organizes and teaches 2-day and 3-day Stereology Workshops that have trained more than 3500 bioscientists in the applications of unbiased stereology to biological tissue.
Stereology Consultation. SRC Biosciences provides professional set-up and management of core facilities.
We also support full service outsourcing for Stereology Core Facility projects through well-established partnerships with professional tissue processing businesses. Hardware requirements for the Stereologer system are met through OEM agreements with manufacturers of microscopes, motorized stage motors, digital camera companies and others.
