CTDS provides a full and wide range of veterinary diagnostic laboratory tests that include haematology, biochemistry, allergy testing, cytology, endocrinology, histopathology, virology, microbiology, PCR testing and much more for canine, feline, rabbits, small mammals, avians, exotics and horses. Our veterinary laboratory staff have many years experience in veterinary diagnostic testing and although the company is recently formed, in early 2004, it is already becoming established as a lab whose service is based on rapid turnround, high quality veterinary diagnostic results and opinions for companion animals, exotics and equines.
Our goal is to offer a friendly, personalised laboratory service that provides you with analytical and service quality, case continuity, meticulous care and full pathology support.
Each and every case we deal with is reported and interpreted based on the history you give us we don’t use coded, affectionately known as canned, comments. Our database enables us to match multiple samples from each patient and provide you with the full picture of patient tests. Cumulative patient reports are available on request, as are reports by fax, telephone, email or post.
Every one of our pathology procedures undergo stringent quality checks and the use of standard operating procedures ensure consistency in our methods and results. CTDS is fully approved by the laboratory standards committee of the European College of Veterinary Clinical Pathology as a training laboratory. The lab is directly supervised by a RCVS Recognised Specialist and European Diplomate in Veterinary Clinical Pathology and every report is reviewed by a veterinary pathologist before being sent from the lab with a full interpretation given when a history is provided. We are totally committed to delivering results and interpretations of the highest quality. The laboratory is approved for CEMO testing by the HBLB and in addition we participate in external quality control programmes – RIQAS for haematology and chemistry and VLA schemes for microbiology.
Our aim is to provide our clients with accurate and timely results and provide a service which meets the needs of the patient whilst also being convenient and cost effective for the veterinary practitioner. If you would like to hear what our clients say about us please contact the laboratory.
