In addition to veterinary diagnostic services, we provide pathology expertise in biomedical and translational research for the enhancement of human and animal health. We are happy to assist you in your research endeavors, from study design to analysis to manuscript preparation. Our prosectors and histotechnicians are here to assist you with your technical needs, from gross dissection to tissue processing, microtomy, slide staining and novel histotechnology. Collectively, the pathologists at SpecialtyVETPATH have experience in clinical and anatomic pathology from a wide array of species, including laboratory and aquatic animals. We also have experience and expertise to provide assistance with immunohistochemical studies including antibody selection, optimization, validation and interpretation.
SpecialtyVETPATH also offers technical training. We will train technicians, post docs or student assistants to perform IHC staining, microtomy, or other techniques in our well-equipped, modern lab facility. Contact us to discuss your needs, and we will design a training schedule and curriculum to fit your project.
