Pathology

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

The diagnostic autopsy is performed on customer's order and in case of sudden death of animal/animals without clinical symptoms, an increased mortality of animals for prolonged periods or a sudden onset of the clinical symptoms of a disease. At autopsy, all the organs and tissues are assessed (including the brain), liver, spleen, kidney, heart, lung and changed organs and tissues are collected for histology. If suspicious pathological lesions are found, samples for bacteriology or parasitology are also collected.

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 other pathogens (like Pneumocystis spp., Clostridium piliforme, Encephalitozoon cuniculi,...).
