Our histopathology department is ready to offer full support and guidance both for studies run in-house but also to provide slide processing and/or histopathological evaluation for ex-house studies.

Our pathologists are experienced in evaluating short- and long-term toxicity studies performed in most animal species commonly used in preclinical toxicity testing and have an exceptional expertise in evaluating wound healing studies, embryofetal and juvenile studies performed in the Göttingen minipig.
