The Phenomics Australia Histopathology and Slide Scanning Service is the only service of its kind in Australia. Staff and consultants have the expertise and skills to provide a thorough morphological evaluation of variant or treated mouse strains. The service assists in validating mouse models of human disease and therefore current and future therapeutic opportunities.
Our services include:
- Necropsy and full body histopathology evaluation
- Mouse neonate and embryo evaluation
- Detailed histology, pathology and neuropathology commentary
- Tissue scoring and grading
- Macroscopic/microscopic image documents
- Blood analysis reporting
- Blood and bone marrow smear evaluation
- Slide scanning
- Secure, online access to all digitised images and reports
- X-ray imaging of mouse skeletal structures
- Commentary by veterinary and medical pathologists
We also work on highly specialised biomedical research projects.
We have provided support to over 150 Australian researchers across 30 biomedical research facilities. We worked with Professor Graeme Clark and Cochlear Industries to provide the histopathology evaluation and high-resolution images of the inner ear of the first cochlear implant recipient, 28 years after the operation. The donated cochlear of the deceased implant recipient was so highly valuable and rare, it required the platform’s expert services to examine and process.
