Specialized support

Our core skills are provided through an extensively trained team of experts at TPL Path Labs which offers various analytical evaluations. Our skills are focused on toxicological pathology, immunohistology, cutting & grinding, human 2D und 3D co-cultures (human in vivo-like methods) and clinical studies.


Our qualities

Authencity: TPL Path Labs is one of the few privately owned histopathological laboratories in Europe and works in fully compliance with GLP and GCLP regulations.

Promptness: capacity to prepare up to 2500 slides within 24 hours and evaluation in less than 3 weeks is achievable.

in vitro

  • Slide production
  • Animal, human and toxicological pathology
  • Special immuno- and enzyme-based histological techniques
  • Target validation with microarrays and IHC techniques
  • Cutting & grinding technique (also with implants and hard materials)

Clinical studies

  • Diagnostics
  • Immunohistochemical studies
  • Computer-assisted quantitative analyses

The value of efficiency

We are open to new ideas coming from our partners and implement them reliably, flexibly and by highly innovative processes with remarkably high operating speed. Open and loyal collaboration with our partners is more than just a phrase for us but is included in our service as a standard component. For example, you will get regular updates informing you continuously about the progress of your study.

As an innovative service provider, we offer you a unique research platform which supports and complements results obtained with our classical in vitro methods by examinations of human tissue materials. With these additional services, TPL Path Labs enters a new dimension of relevance and reliability of preclinical results.


Our operating speed

GLP unit

  • Trimming: up to 2500 organs per day
  • Embedding: 700 cassettes per day
  • Cutting of paraffin blocks: up to 1400 cuts per day
  • Staining: 2500 slides per day
  • Quality control: 1000 slides per day

Support in preclinical studies

We offer services in Toxicological Pathology and Immunohistology. These in vitro methods increasingly find their utilisation in preclinical studies. For tissue implants, in addition to the cutting and grinding technology, we offer studies on irritations, tissue integration and morphometry. As complementary services we offer in vivo-like methods for human and tissue-specific investigations.

Support in clinical studies

We perform histopathological analyses for clinical studies. TPL Path Labs is specialised in displaying effects and adverse events through conventional histology and a broad spectrum of special stains. Particularly helpful is our tool for immunohistochemistry – this allows us to quantitatively evaluate therapy success computer-assisted.
