Why Use EPL for Histopathology Services?

Companies who outsource the histopathology component of their valuable studies need to know that the work will be performed to the highest quality standards, on time, and at competitive prices.  Although claims of quality are easily made, true quality can be a difficult metric to gauge.  So let’s look at the evidence.

Unlike its few competitors, EPL has established a 45-year track record of proven performance.  Strategically located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, northern Virginia near Dulles Airport, Seattle, San Francisco, Indianapolis, and Philadelphia, EPL is an employee-owned brick and mortar business that is not beholden to external stockholder expectations; nor are we impacted or distracted by acquisitions or harmonization efforts.  EPL’s ideal size of approximately 110 employees provides us with the capacity and flexibility to handle large complex projects with rapid turnaround times, while concurrently offering personalized service.

When experience matters, it can be reassuring to know that EPL is managed, supervised, and marketed by on-site pathologists who are recognized industry leaders with global reputations.  Active in professional societies, committees, and workshops, many EPL pathologists excel not only in the field of general toxicologic pathology, but also in areas of special expertise such as clinical pathology, renal pathology, immunopathology, ocular pathology, cardiovascular pathology, neuropathology, medical device work, transgenic rodent studies, morphometric analyses, and ecotoxicological and aquatic animal pathology.  In addition, technically advanced services such as immunohistochemistry, image analysis, and stereology are routinely available.

Through the use of specialized software and other established systems, EPL has unparalleled experience conducting pathology peer reviews and Pathology Working Groups for government and industry clients in the United States and abroad.
