The goal of the Experimental Pathology Facility (EPF) is to provide expertise in anatomic and clinical pathology – in the form of service, teaching, and consultation – for researchers studying veterinary diseases and animal models of human disease, both within Colorado State University and at outside institutions.
The Experimental Pathology Facility is a Colorado State University core laboratory facility that operates through state-of-the-art histology and bioanalytical laboratories located within Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratories and Diagnostic Medicine Center.
The Experimental Pathology Core Facility has three primary objectives;
1) to provide specialized pathology consultation and collaboration for researchers performing basic science research and preclinical studies, both within and outside of Colorado State University;
2) to provide expert histological processing of research samples, interpretation of disease morphology, and quantitative methods for determining disease severity, pathogenesis and treatment efficacy; and
3) to provide expert laboratory services and interpretation for hematology, clinical chemistry, and cytology.
*DISCLOSURE* – The laboratories within the EPF that handle research samples do not operate under GLP conditions or regulations.
