5 Reasons You Need to Outsource

When you're in the middle of research or trying to get a product approved by the FDA, histopathology is what's going to help you every step of the way.

Rather than doing this on your own, it's often easier to rely on a third-party. Outsourcing can provide you with many benefits.

Work on Multiple Projects

Many researchers work on multiple projects at once. This is because they have learned the art of multi-tasking and delegating. It's not possible for you to do everything on your own. When you outsource your histopathology services, it allows you to work on multiple projects doing what you love to do as opposed to focusing solely on one project where you're responsible for everything.

Meet Deadlines

In the world of research and adhering to FDA guidelines, there are plenty of deadlines. The last thing you want is to run out of time on something and have to start all over again. This will only cost you more money and lead to more frustration. By working with a third-party lab, you gain more time for everything else that you have to do. They will assist with meeting the deadlines by running the services on your behalf.

Get Detailed Information

It's hard to be an expert in everything. Outsourcing your histopathology allows you to learn from veterinary pathologists who know more about the various animals you are taking tissue samples. They know how cancer affects the organs, how toxic various chemicals are on the animals, and much more. 

The information you get from the reports is more detailed than what you could produce and therefore it allows you to take research to a new level.

Save Money

Virtually every research facility, pharmaceutical company, and lab works within a budget. You have to be cognizant of how much money it's costing you to keep your lab up and running. If you don't have the latest and greatest equipment, it might not be in the budget for you to buy. However, without the best equipment, are you able to get the information you need in order to fulfill your research obligations?

It's possible to save money by outsourcing. The histopathology can be done outside of your lab and therefore you don't have to waste your resources in order to get the information that is needed.

Take Advantage of More Services

What you do in your lab might be very different from what a third-party does in their lab. As such, outsourcing allows you to access more comprehensive services. This means tapping into more information about tissue samples, biopsies, and more. 

Some of the services you can access include:

  • Toxicologic pathology
  • Reproductive pathology
  • Carcinogenicity
  • Animal models of disease
  • Small molecule and biologicals

This could be just what you need to take your research to the next level and potentially make a breakthrough. Plus, if your lab doesn't have the equipment needed to perform certain tests, it might be a necessity to outsource some of the histopathology services.

There is no reason for you to do everything on your own. Outsourcing is common and is what could save you money, time, and provide you with more information than what can be found within your own lab. You don't have to use your lab for everything and sometimes, it might be nice to get a second opinion.
