Veterinary laboratory services

The Veterinary laboratory services incorporates  the diagnostic pathology service, which offers a full range of services including post mortem examinations, histopathology, electron microscopy cytology and immunohistology diagnostic services. Diagnostic microbiology and parasitology services are also available. The service is open to veterinary surgeons in private practice in addition to University of Liverpool veterinary hospitals.

Many of our postmortem cases are of a forensic nature and we have particular expertise in this area. In addition to our standard immunohistology service of tumour phenotyping and infectious agent identification, we run also a tumour grading and prognostic evaluation service. Electron microscopy and specific parasitology examinations can also be undertaken.

Furthermore, the laboratories provide extensive services for research within the University and external institutions. They are subject to external quality assurance.
