The Comparative Pathology Laboratory provides histology and pathology support for animal diagnostic laboratories of Delaware and Maryland, researchers at the University of Delaware and its affiliates (DBI, etc.), industry and government partners of the university, and external researchers. We specialize in animal tissues and studies related to animal disease or animal models of human disease. However, we also routinely accept plant specimens for tissue processing. We strive to provide clients with customized high quality specimen preparations and thorough pathology reports to meet their individual diagnostic and research needs.
