Laboratory Services

Reliable and Efficient Laboratory Services are Essential

When it comes to producing slides of exceptional quality, our highly skilled and experienced laboratory technicians are heads and shoulders above the rest.

Our Team

Founded in 2009, SVP understands the importance of both efficiency and quality when it comes to producing slides and fostering a collaborative research experience. As such, SVP employs dedicated laboratory technicians who pride themselves in their work. As part of SVP’s mission to assist sponsors in producing the best quality diagnostic and research slides, our prosectors and histotechnicians are here to assist you with all your technical needs, from gross necropsy and dissection to tissue processing, microtomy, slide staining, and novel histotechnology. We can work with wet tissues, or we can cut and stain sections from provided paraffin blocks. We also have the experience and expertise to provide assistance with immunohistochemical studies including antibody selection, optimization, validation, and interpretation.

SpecialtyVETPATH also offers technical training. We will train technicians, post docs or student assistants to perform IHC staining, microtomy, or other techniques in our facility. Contact us to discuss your needs, and we will design a training schedule and curriculum to fit your project.
