Histopathology


We provide high quality biopsy and necropsy services to the veterinary profession, servicing the University Veterinary Hospitals and large private referral practices. We offer a service that entails a strong review process, with all specimens being reviewed by multiple pathologists, and a personalised interaction with the veterinarian. Our pathologists are readily available for comment on individual cases and can help veterinarians bring their clinical research to publication standard. In addition, we offer a high quality reliable service to researchers in histopathological specimen processing, immunohistochemistry, and processing of unusual specimens. Our highly skilled technical staff are available for consultation about unusual or difficult specimens.

The laboratory has a special interest in histopathology of the diseased eye and has a strong relationship with specialist ophthalmologists.
Monthly ocular histopathology rounds with specialist ophthalmologists supports this activity and allows correlation between clinical and pathological findings.
