Hear from Histologists at IDEXX

"I enjoy my job at the laboratory, every day is never the same. We receive different samples from several different animals and you don't know what you're going to get until you pick up each batch of work. We can interact with pathologists to have queries about certain cases and we also pass on information from more senior staff to more junior members of the staff on a daily basis."
