Let's work together


If you have a study, and you want to know if stereology can be a useful method for gaining accurate results and true quantitative data, give us a call. By applying a methodical approach to sampling, we will help you get useful, usable results.

Contact us

Contact us before you harvest
We often receive inquiries from organizations interested in using stereology, yet they have already harvested the organ, which, in many cases, impacts our ability to apply stereology in a cost- efficient manner. So if you’re interested in (or if you wish to investigate the application of stereology in your study) contact us as early in the process as possible, so we are in the best position to advise you.

Why we
keep it simple Read

Just because it’s science, doesn’t mean the research has to be complicated. One of our mantras is the need to get clear, simple answers from research. It’s true, with limited time and resources and infinite pressure to produce results, it can be very tempting to get the most bang for your proverbial buck by trying to include as many endpoints in a study as possible. Yet, what often happens with this approach is that you get inconclusive results that require further investigation, taking more time and using more resources. By taking a straightforward approach to study design, we ensure our customers get clear answers they can use.
