New Ocular Pathology Service
While we have already been providing ocular pathology services to a small number of clients, we are excited to expand our ocular pathology service and offer this expertise to a wider range of clients.
Because of the additional processing required for ocular samples, an ocular biopsy fee will be added to the price of a standard biopsy (test code 40003) for each eye submitted. Please see ocular biopsy in our test catalog (test code 40069) for additional information.
