Lab Animal Diagnostic Services

Committed to laboratory animal health

We understand the critical role that animal health plays in the validity of any research study. Our goal is to provide comprehensive diagnostic services to laboratory veterinarians and researchers in order to further One Health efforts. The Athens Diagnostic Laboratory provides custom health monitoring and clinical diagnostic services for conventional and unconventional laboratory species, as well as for agricultural animals. In addition, we are able to conduct various studies to phenotype genetically modified rodents and fish.
