EPL pathologists have a wide range of experience and expertise with animals routinely used in research providing scientific and technical collaborations.
Animal models are frequently used to study the development and progression of diseases and to test new treatments before they are given to humans. Our pathologists have experience in the use of animal research models and in the evaluation and interpretation of pathology data generated from a study utilizing an animal research model. By using an experienced EPL pathologist, you will receive the most accurate data for interpretation and ensure that studies will not likely need to be repeated, minimizing animal use.
