Facility Details

The Anatomic Pathology Core (APC) is responsible for post-mortem examinations, tissue collection and distribution, fixation, processing, slide preparation, routine and special staining, and diagnostic gross and histologic pathology services. The APC also processes and interprets biopsy specimens for both research and diagnostic purposes and provides tissue trimming, paraffin processing, sectioning, and routine and special staining for clinical and research staff and faculty. The APC works closely with clinical veterinarians, and through diagnostic pathology on biopsies and necropsies, plays a major role in monitoring and maintaining the health of the animals in the breeding colonies.
