Diagnostic Laboratory

Welcome to the Diagnostic and Research Support Service (DRSS) Laboratory at CMARC

Our diagnostic laboratory specializes in the diagnostic and research needs of laboratory animals, with an emphasis on the mouse as an animal model in biomedical research. The lab staff members are committed to providing high quality diagnostic research services, short turn-around time of results and customer satisfaction. The spectrum of tests offered is reassessed regularly to ensure they reflect the requirements of our clients. For tests not conducted in house, we rely on our network of reference and external laboratories.

Hematology specimens must be submitted between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.
