Our motto is to build an interactive bridge between the scientist and the pathologist

Qualified molecular analysis
The DMPC provides cutting–edge techniques and expertise in the molecular and morphological analysis for qualified analysis of genetically modified animals and animal models of human diseases.

Animal models for human disease
We offer full necropsy service including gross examination of tissues, appropriate tissue fixation, slide preparation, and histological evaluation. Analyses are performed by board-certified veterinary pathologists specialised in analysing rodent and zebrafish models. Reporting of the pathological data includes scoring sheets, descriptive data, imaging and interpretation of the significance of the pathological findings as animal model for human diseases. Furthermore we offer recommendations and suggestions for in vivo and in vitro studies to further explore the molecular mechanism of the gene of interest.
