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.
