Nationwide Specialist Laboratories, formerly known as Dechra Specialist Laboratories originally Cambridge Specialist Laboratory Services, was formed in 1998 by a small group of scientists and technicians with many years of experience in veterinary diagnostics and radioimmunoassay. They saw a demand for the provision of a unique level of analytical quality in the field of veterinary endocrinology.

The aim of the laboratory is to find the best or “gold standard” assay technologies that can be made available to the veterinary profession at reasonable cost.

What we do

We provide unparalleled quality in all our endocrine assays giving the most accurate and precise results for every sample submitted thus ensuring you can confidently make the right diagnosis every time.
