VPDS at the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences provide histopathology, cytopathology, hematology and biochemistry services for general and cancer diagnostics. Furthermore, the VPDS is in the process of developing molecular diagnostic services, including T Cell Receptor and IG Heavy chain clonality assays for cancer diagnostics.

A/Prof. Mark Krockenberger has been working on T Cell Receptor PCR assays in cats and has been investigating the association between gastric lymphosarcoma and Helicobacter spp. groups in cats and dogs, with the aim of developing diagnostic services.
