A key part of diagnosing diseases in veterinary medicine is the review of blood and fluid samples by clinical pathologists. Unfortunately, less than 1% of the U.S Veterinary hospitals have a clinical pathologist on staff.
Today, when a pet is taken to a veterinarian and there is a need for cytology review most clinics rely on shipping glass slides across the country. This antiquated process leads to a turnaround time of 2-3 days or more. Too often, our pets are left waiting for critical answers needed to start treatment, and owners are left worrying about the diagnosis. In this day and age of digital technology, cytology review does not have to be this slow!
At Lacuna, we see this as one massive "unfilled space" in veterinary medicine.
Inspired by the love for our furry friends we embarked on our journey to fill this critical gap in veterinary medicine with digital cytology.
Lacuna Diagnostics uses digital technology to fill this void in veterinary testing and help veterinarians treat with confidence in minutes, not days or weeks.
