Comparative Pathology Core Service
The Comparative Pathology Core Service (CPC) is dedicated to providing collaborative expertise in the use and interpretation of animal models of human and animal disease. The veterinary pathologists in the CPC provide pathology services including gross and microscopic tissue examination, clinical pathology evaluation/interpretation, histomorphometric analysis, and support for grant applications. In addition, the core can develop and implement ancillary techniques which include immunohistochemical methods, special imaging (fluorescence microscopy, morphometric analysis), flow cytometry, laser capture microdissection, and photomicroscopy. CPC costs are based on histopathology lab services and pathologists' effort. Pathologist effort will vary based on the needs of the project and more detailed information can be provided by contacting the CPC.
