The Tufts Animal Histology Core and Comparative Pathology Services (CPS) provides the diagnosis and study of animal tissues using state-of-the-art technology.
The CPS is a full-service, multi-discipline, diagnostic and research pathology laboratory offering clinical and anatomic pathology services. CPS services offered include: hematology (complete blood counts with white blood cell differentials, serum biochemical panels); parasitology; microbiology (bacterial and fungal identification, antimicrobial sensitivity); analysis of urine and other body fluids; serology for numerous bacterial, viral and parasitic infectious agents; and environmental monitoring. All tests are performed by qualified laboratory professionals trained in veterinary laboratory techniques. The CPS also has access to a network of reference laboratories to provide tests that are not performed in-house.
In our Tufts Animal Histology Core, an HTL (ASCP), QIHC certified histology technician provides complete histology services including tissue processing, paraffin embedding, and sectioning. Routine stains such as hematoxylin & eosin and special histochemical and immunohistochemical stains are available.
