AccelLAB provides evaluation services for orthopedic medical devices and biologics from the proof of concept to regulatory testing. State-of-the-art imaging modalities include computer tomography imaging (CT scanner), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), high-definition radiography (Faxitron), and micro computed tomography (Micro-CT). Diverse histological end-points are quantitatively assessed using manual and software-guided automated histomorphometry. A full histopathological analysis and quantitative report is provided by experienced veterinary pathologists.
