Why You Should Outsource Your Pathology Reports

Facing audits is a way of life for those of you managing a laboratory.

Getting Published - How Important is a Peer Review?

If you're new to your scientific industry, it's time to learn an important part of what helps you gain more sponsors based on your research clout.

 The Society of Toxicologic Pathology (STP) is hosting their 36th annual Symposium in Montréal, Québec.

The Importance of Preclinical Research Under the FDA Animal Rule

When the FDA Animal Rule, or Animal Efficacy Rule, became law in 2002, it created a pathway for assessing the safety and efficacy of drugs and biological products for “serious or life-threatening conditions caused by exposure to lethal or permanently disabling substances” when human clinical trials are not ethical or feasible.

The Smarts on Brain Samples for Nonclinical Studies

Your lab is preparing to run a general toxicity study. You review the Good Laboratory Practices (GLPs) for the optimal tissue list. Brain is just one of the many required tissues, so what’s the big deal? Those histopathology folks will know what to do with it, right?

Why Use a CRO for Pre-Clinical Necropsy

Pre-clinical Necropsy defines one of the processes researchers use to develop drugs for humans. It is a step taken using animals to study the tissue response to a developed drug.

GLP & Non-GLP: What's the Difference?

Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) refers to a system where non-clinical health and safety studies are carried out, planned, monitored, recorded, archived and reported. 

Pathology: Why Use A CRO For Your Preclinical Research

Conducting preclinical research is never easy. There are many components, and pathology is a big part of this. You need to explore the causes and effects of a particular disease, particularly how it affects the body. This will make it easier for you to proceed with your research and eventually learn enough so that you can take it to clinical studies.

Outsourcing: How Important are SOPs?

As a laboratory that deals in a specific science, you're perhaps starting to realize it's impossible to do testing on your own without some help.  Whether its histology, biotechnology, or the pharma industry, your reputation is on the line if a particular study goes awry due to staff inefficiencies.

Why Preclinical Research is Critical To Drug Discovery For Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a serious disease that plagues both men and women around the globe. US Breast Cancer statistics estimates that approximately one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer at some time in their life. There are approximately 240,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 61,000 cases of noninvasive breast cancer diagnosed every year.  There is no cure for breast cancer as of yet, though there is a significant amount of research focused upon it.
