Health Screening & Pathology

The MMRRC at UC Davis and Mouse Biology Program (MBP) work closely with the UC Davis Comparative Pathology Laboratory (CPL), which provides gross necropsy and histopathology services tailored for the diagnosis of spontaneous or infectious diseases in laboratory animals. We offer consultation on management and control strategies, and we field questions regarding the use of animal models in the study of human diseases. Consultation on experimental pathology procedures, such as post-mortem sample harvest or organ fixation can also be provided. CPL also serves the UC Davis campus as the research animal diagnostic laboratory.
