The field of histology is crucial in areas such as safety research, pharmaceutical development, and medical diagnosis, among others. Understandably, the creation of a high-quality histology slides begins with the careful collection and handling of the tissues, followed by steps like proper fixation, dehydration, clearing, accurate embedding, skilled microtomy, and meticulous staining. While this process is time-intensive, properly conducting these steps are essential to ensure artifact-free results and precise interpretation. A good histology lab needs to spend its time on this process rather than shipping delays or unnecessary queues as a result of your status at your CRO or shifting priorities of the histology lab.
Introducing Increased Speed, By controlling the Process
Given the stakes, the criticality of both accuracy and speed can hardly be overstated. Errors or delays that begin in the histology lab are not only costly; they often have real time impacts on your IND submission and entire program timelines. To that end, Attentive recently added histology capabilities and can leverage these new proficiencies to ensure that your expectations are kept front and center for the entirety of the process and to minimize any potential delays that could affect your timelines.
Keeping the Focus on your Histology needs
When selecting a histology laboratory service provider, the well-informed client typically looks for six primary areas of excellence:
· Efficiency in processing tissues and providing results within a reasonable and agreed-upon timeframe;
· Robust quality control (QC) and quality assurance (QA) protocols;
· State-of-the-art equipment and technology for tissue processing and staining;
· Reliable use of automation, while adhering to applicable regulatory guidelines;
· Demonstrable world-class expertise and experience in handling various types of tissues and specimens.
· Competitive and transparent pricing, along with a clear explanation of what each service entails.
