Why More Organizations are Outsourcing Histopathology

Histopathology plays a large role in medical and pharmaceutical research. However, when performing histopathology in-house it can be expensive, time consuming, or in some cases a non-core function. Let’s discuss the topic by analyzing reasons why organizations are outsourcing histopathology services.

Improves your bottom line and management of resources

Organizations are always looking for ways to reduce costs, that is why many organizations are looking at outsourcing some or all their histopathology services to a third-party lab. The cost of maintaining a lab and equipment can sometimes not fit into the budget. By outsourcing you can better manage your resources and have readily access to the lab only when needed. In most cases the cost of outsourcing is cheaper and will provide you the ability to improve your bottom line.

Quick turnaround times

Histopathology laboratories have already spent the time researching the best methods and protocols. If you were trying to do this on your own, it may require a lot of time considering the possible variables. Well trained staff also help in efficient management of projects by avoiding mistakes and delays, ensuring that you get faster results.

Access to expertise and quality

With the collective years of experience, staff can provide unmatched expertise, quality assurance, and feedback when catering to your research project needs. Experienced staff use quality control processes to ensure that the end result is of the highest quality and delivers the most detailed research possible for your project.

Increased service access

Depending on the research needs, sometimes their own labs cannot provide that service. For instance, you may not be able to perform certain special stains or have the experience to perform histology on medical device samples. Whatever the case may be, outsourcing can help fill this gap and expand your service line.
