Anatomical pathology is the major endpoint to toxicology studies. Potential target organ toxicity of pharmaceuticals has to be assessed with accuracy to provide support for human clinical trials.

Vivotecnia‘s commitment to highest quality and scientific standards has led us to partner with Anapath Services, a world leader laboratory in anatomical pathology, a team of scientists internationally recognized which combines not only the toxicological pathology but also neuropathology, inhalation pathology and bone marrow evaluations, among others.

Anapath is experienced, knowledgeable, and ready to meet your needs, by providing:
