Veterinary Comparative Pathology Services
A multitude of the genetically engineered mice are produced each year in research to help understand gene functions. However, these animals also show different phenotypes that may or may not be relevant to the research project. It is known today that a large percentage of gene alterations result in no detectable phenotype and a large percentage result in either unexpected or irrelevant phenotypes.
Anatomic and clinical pathology evaluations of your animals by a board certified veterinary pathologist are essential steps of a research project with rodents. Whether it is for consultation, project design, toxicologic pathology, gross and histopathological evaluations of animals and tissues, hematology and biochemistry profiles, training/orientation and workshops in necropsy techniques, the pathologist offers an array of services to help you get the most out of your research.
