Our Approach

First, we must understand the need, then we will know how to serve

Understanding your Clinical Trial

DCL Pathology understands that Anatomic and Molecular Pathology can prove to be a challenging yet critically important component in many clinical trials. We view every new trial as an opportunity to leverage DCL’s expertise in adding clarity, simplicity and excellence to yet another unique and important study.

We begin by listening and asking; which launches a consultative process that allows our clients and partners to more fully capitalize on our wealth of experience. Our goal is to assist in developing the best technical and professional processes possible to provide clear and valuable safety, clinical, and endpoint data.

Considering your Time and Budget

The team at DCL Pathology understands there are plenty of hurdles to clear and barriers to navigate on the path to approval, so we strive to be as interactive and efficient as possible.

Delivering as Needed and On-Time

When managing or partnering in your clinical trial, we work to provide service that exceeds your expectations. Our technical and professional strength, faster response times, clear feedback, and effective problem resolution practices combine to support our standards of high quality.

Making Data More Useful

DCL Pathology continues to lead in effective data usage. Our commitment to championing codified diagnostic systems began more than two decades ago. Our goal is to convert what is typically lengthy verbiage into more actionable clinical data. Codified and standardized diagnostic nomenclature reduces ambiguity and enables quantification and analysis of pathology findings.

Focus on Quality

A core tenet of our business model is to weave quality throughout. DCL Pathology is accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), CLIA, and the New York State Department of Health. DCL additionally holds lab licensure in Florida and Maryland, as well as physician licensure in many additional states. Whether we are providing accurate pathology interpretation, effective histological processing, or beautiful whole slide images, DCL incorporates a culture of quality each step of the way.
