Slide Prep Services

KDL SlideTechTM

The KDL laboratory provides superior ancillary services including slide preparation to those clinicians and pathologists that read their own routine pathology or offices that have their own in-house pathologist. The processing of tissue biopsies, slide preparation and staining is crucial for accurate diagnosis and treatment of disease. Poorly prepared slides cannot be accurately read and may lead to inaccurate diagnosis or must be re-processed, leading to delays and added expense. Let KDL qualified staff prepare the biopsy  for you in an experienced, CAP accredited laboratory.

  • You or your pathologist interpret the slides and generate reports.
  • You bill the professional component (26).
