The Comparative Pathology Lab (CPL) provides both anatomic and clinical pathology services to diagnose animal health issues and evaluate research questions.

Clinical Service

Necropsy and Biopsy
CPL performs diagnostic necropsies for research colonies and animals to determine causes of illness or death, as well as the effects of instrumentation, research procedures, or genetic manipulation. Where warranted, the CPL can also offer microbiology, including virology, parasitology, bacteriology, and histopathology on necropsy and biopsy specimens.

Clinical Laboratory Submission
CPL accepts submissions for ancillary testing, including small and large animal panels, avian, reptile and small mammal panels, fecals, and bacteriology cultures. We offer special pricing through SVM, Marshfield, and WVDL.

Rodent Disease Surveillance
CPL can examine sentinel animals and provide serologic evaluation for infectious disease, parasitology, endoparasites, ectoparasites, necropsy evaluations, or Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
for identification of parvo viruses, helicobacter, and other organisms.

Environmental Monitoring
Using luciferase, CPL can investigate the efficacy of cleaning methods used in your vivarium. We can also test your water quality.

Research Assistance

Consultative Pathology
CPL can provide a variety of pathology services to research investigators, from preservation to tissue collection, handling, and interpretation of pathology slides. CPL can also provide advice and training regarding tissue collection methods, specimen preservation, and histology optimization.

CPL can work on a fee-for-service basis or collaboratively. Contact pathology staff as early in the formative process as possible, so that we can determine how best to support the research aim.

Histology
Histology staff can provide cassette labeling, specimen processing, slide preparation, special stains, technique training, optimization of archived specimens/tissue blocks, and consultations.
Eligible researchers may also schedule use of histology equipment.

Cell Line Authentication and Sterility Testing
To protect the accuracy of research data, CPL can verify a line's identity and confirm that it is free from contamination by other cell lines and microbes.
We offer special pricing through IDEXX.
