Pathology

We perform both routine autopsy and diagnostic autopsy of laboratory rodents and rabbits. The routine autopsy is perform for a health assessment of animals and sampling from predilection mucous membranes and tissues for bacteriology (culture, PCR). Main organs and tissues are assessed during autopsy and if pathological lesions are found, samples for histology and bacteriology are collected.

The diagnostic autopsy is perform upon customer request and in case of sudden death of animal/animals without clinical symptoms, an increased mortality of animals for a long time or sudden onset of clinical symptoms of disease. During this autopsy, all organs and tissues are assessed (including the brain), liver, spleen, kidney, heart, lung and pathological changed organs and tissues are collected for histology. If suspicious pathological lesions are found, samples for bacteriology or parasitology are collected too.

Histology samples are processed with paraffin technique and stained with hematoxylin and eosin. Except hematoxylin and eosin staining, we also offer special staining for detection of some pathogens (like Pneumocystis spp., Clostridium piliforme, Encephalitozoon cuniculi,...).
