The Queen's Veterinary School Hospital


Central Diagnostic Services (CDS) is a purpose-built laboratory, offering clinical pathology services to the Queen’s Veterinary School Hospital and other veterinary practices across the UK. CDS is staffed by experienced Clinical Pathologists and Technicians and is equipped with state-of-the-art analysers, which are backed up by detailed quality control programmes. The advantage of having this resource on-site means that vets at CEH obtain urgent laboratory results quickly, with same-day reporting on haematology, biochemistry and cytology tests on samples submitted. A full microbiology service is also provided, including culture and sensitivity, faecal analysis and ectoparasite diagnosis.
