Dermatopathology Testing Services

All physicians rely on a range of testing to identify the cause of illnesses and resolve their patients’ symptoms. To support effective treatment of conditions affecting the skin, hair, and more, TOPLAB® offers clients expert dermatopathology services that provide comprehensive analysis of a variety of tissue samples. Our full-service laboratory provides fast results and expert analysis to ensure your patients receive the care they deserve.


What Is Dermatopathology?


Dermatopathology is a highly specialized field of medical testing that focuses on hair, skin, and nails. Technicians study samples to identify abnormalities that signal the presence of disease or tissue damage. While most often used to diagnose skin diseases, dermatopathology is relied on by a wide range of medical practitioners to test for diverse conditions, including:

  • Melanoma
  • Basal cell carcinoma
  • Rashes and irritation
  • Fungal, viral, or bacterial infections
  • Immune system disorders
  • Degenerative diseases
  • Tumors
  • Psoriasis
  • Alopecia

In addition to supporting effective diagnosis, dermatopathology testing can also give additional insight on a tissue sample, help determine whether treatment has been successful, and even identify changes in genetic material that suggest the development of cancer before it may be confirmed by other means.


Dermatopathology Testing Options


TOPLAB® supports private practices, hospitals, and other healthcare entities across the country with trusted, reliable dermatopathology services that deliver accurate results. Our testing capabilities include:

  • Skin biopsies: A small amount of skin is removed so that cells may be analyzed.
  • Punch biopsies: A round tissue sample is acquired by cutting through the top layers of fat below the skin.
  • Excisional biopsies: An excisional biopsy is similar to a punch biopsy, but a scalpel is used to retrieve a sample.
  • Molecular testing: This advanced protocol allows dermatopathologists to identify a variety of conditions, including melanoma.

After picking up (local clients only) or receiving tissue samples, our team utilizes the most advanced techniques and equipment available to provide a precise analysis. Each sample undergoes three levels of examination, including:

  1. The lab technician first examines the tissue with their naked eye.
  2. Naked-eye examinations are followed by a close examination of processed tissue under our advanced microscopes.
  3. We finish the service with histopathology using cutting-edge techniques that analyze RNA and DNA on the molecular level.

Once complete, all testing results may be viewed online via our secure portal for easy, always-on access. Clients may also elect to receive results via mail.
