We do not charge extra for multiple pieces of tissue as long as they are from the same animal. n.b. Bones require decalcification, which softens bone so it can be cut by our microtomes. This may take a couple of days or up to a week, depending on the sample.

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 (except when small exotics are unable to be necropsied and sent whole in formalin).
