Histopathology & Cytopathology
The Eurofins group can provide a full histopathology laboratory service from wet tissue receipt, through to technical processing and histology reporting by a team of consultant histopathologists.
This service is offered by Eurofins Pathology, a histology laboratory which was established in January 2013 as the “The Medical Consultants Pathology Group” and was acquired in January 2016 by the Eurofins Group.
Eurofins Pathology is led by a team of highly experienced consultant pathologists and scientists, with a vast knowledge and experience in both public and private health care.
We process and report over 5,000 cases annually. The case mix includes a wide range of pathology, including GIT, urology, skin, gynaecology and non-gynaecologic cytology. We provide a complete technical and reporting service for the symptomatic breast unit for one of the eight cancer centres.
Eurofins Pathology provides a comprehensive diagnostic service to many institutions, including general practitioners and other hospitals nationwide on a wide range of tissue samples.
TISSUE PROCESSING AND STAINING
Our samples are processed using the Tissue Tek VIP and staining by the Tissue Tek Prisma automated stainer with integrated coverslipper. By utilising the multi-programmable settings on these state of the art machines we can provide a tailored service specific to whatever your needs may be.
Our Microtomy service is done using state of the art microtomes namely the Leica RM2255 fully capable of providing samples from 0.5µm to ‘specialist’ molecular sections. Our team prides itself on the rapid turnaround of these samples and our stringent quality control measures mean that all samples provided will be at the highest specifications.
We provide on-site IHC on a wide range of antibodies using the Leica Bond automated stainer. Our staff are highly qualified in this department and if any specialist requests are needed on a regular basis we can provide IHC on any marker you require.
