Background and history

StageBio is the leading service provider for preclinical necropsy, histology, pathology, and specimen archiving services in the biopharmaceutical, medical device, and contract research industries.

We formed through the merger of renowned contract research organizations—Histo-Scientific Research Laboratories (HSRL), HSRL Archives, Vet Path Services, Inc. (VPS), VPS Archives, Tox Path Specialists (TPS), and Alizée Pathology. By integrating these scientific ventures, we are able to offer beginning-to-end histopathology services to meet all of our clients’ needs under one roof.
