Welcome to the Animal Histopathology & Lab Medicine Core

The Animal Histopathology and Laboratory Medicine Core provides UNC investigators and other researchers with a full range of seamless services for animal pathology needs, from tissues to biologic fluids.

This newly combined core (Animal Clinical Chemistry with Animal Histopathology) offers pathology consultation, high quality preparation of frozen and fixed tissue sections, routine histologic and special tissue stains, immunohistochemical stains, Luminex assays, hematology, urinalysis, cytology, blood smears, and clinical chemistry.

The Animal Histopathology and Lab Medicine Core adds value through a convenient campus location, customizable services, competitive pricing, and access to a board-certified veterinary pathologist.

We would appreciate that any work provided by the Animal Histopathology and Lab Medicine Core which is included in a publication acknowledges the contribution of the core facility.  Proper acknowledgment of our core facility enables us to obtain financial and other support so we may continue to provide essential services at a low cost.  It would be appreciated if you sent a copy of the accepted manuscript and/or published paper to lcccanimalhistopathology@med.unc.edu.

Animal histopathology was performed by the Animal Histopathology & Laboratory Medicine Core at the University of North Carolina, which is supported in part by an NCI Center Core Support Grant (5P30CA016086-41) to the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.

In addition, if any facility personnel makes a substantial intellectual and/or experimental contribution to a publication they deserve recognition just as any other co-author.  This is essential for the professional development of our staff.  We recommend scientists follow the "ABRF Recommended Guidelines for Authorship on Manuscripts".
