Molecular Testing

At VPG, we provide a high quality and responsive molecular testing service which is accessible to all veterinary surgeons facing the challenges of first opinion and referral practice. We pride ourselves on running our extensive range of diagnostic tests twice weekly, allowing a consistent and dependable reporting time.

Part of our molecular testing service can be used as a tool in the diagnosis of lymphoproliferative disease and is based on molecular identification of clonal populations of lymphocytes. The advantages of using this method includes:

  • Clonality testing may be applied to the stained cytologty preparations, blood, fluids, bone marrow, tissue aspirates and air-dried smears which contain abnormal cell population.
  • The test is highly effective and has been widely used in the Veterinary Pathology Group since 2014 (dog) and 2015 (cat) using a combination of published techniques of B- and T-cell clonality testing.
  • It has proven its reliability, providing confirmation of lymphoma in numerous difficult cases when used in conjunction with cytology and/or histopathology.
