We recognize that histology needs can vary greatly over time depending on the size and location of the practice and availability of technical staff. With that in mind, we offer technical services, tailored to both hospital and office-based practices. To discuss your technical preparation service needs, please call +1.800 325.PATH (7284), or click on “Services Request Form” on the right side of this page.
Our practice utilizes StrataDx for their technical services. We send approximately 40-80 specimens per day to Strata for processing, and they return prepared slides to us for interpretation. StrataDx has high quality slides, some of the best I have seen in my 20 years of practice. Their service is unmatched, and they have provided our practice with all of the technology needs as well, so that reports can be electronic and all parts of the service streamlined. I cannot say enough about the high quality, attention to detail, and impeccable service that Strata has provided to our group. We see a large volume of patients and diagnose a number of complicated skin diseases every day, including skin cancer, serious infections, blistering disorders, and more. As a result, we need to use a laboratory that provides efficient expert slide preparation and one in which we can communicate regularly with the staff.
Although most clients desire full technical and diagnostic services, some practitioners request that only the technical preparation be performed. Whether your need is for routine H & E slides, special stains or immunohistochemistry, we are able to deliver these services on both short notice and on a pre-arranged basis
Ever-shrinking hospital budgets and marginally staffed histology departments present a continuing management challenge for hospital-based pathologists. We offer both long-term technical processing commitments as well as short-term emergency relief, in the event of staff illness or equipment malfunction.
