Pathology Services

Services available 

Our prices are available on application. Please contact us at for a price list.



We will process up to four tissue from one animal for the same price, there will be no additional charge for routine special stains. If required immunohistochemistry does carry an additional charge and we will provide a quote for this before proceeding.

Bones require decalcification, which softens bone so it can be cut by our microtomes. This may take a couple of days or several weeks, depending on the sample. Large samples which require pathologist dissection may be subject to a supplementary charge, please contact the lab for details.


Post Mortems

We are happy to receive tissues from small animals which have been necropsied i.e. kittens, puppies, small mammals, birds, fish and reptiles. Unfortunately we are not able to accept whole animals for post mortem. For complete post mortems please call for advice.
