COVID-19 Announcement

Updated 8/26/20:  All those who enter any CPL or other campus building must first complete an online symptom survey prior to entering.

The Comparative Pathology Laboratory (CPL) at UC Davis is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 response. At this time, the CPL will remain open. Business hours are 8am - 5pm M-F. We are committed to our mission of supporting laboratory animal care, protecting laboratory animal health and promoting research excellence. To ensure the health and safety of our people and support campus directives, CPL will be staffed by essential employees only. All submissions will be accepted but samples related to animal care will be prioritized. As we commit to the COVID-19 response by limiting on-site staff, please expect delayed turnaround times. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us at If you have projects planned, please contact to coordinate submission. Thank you and stay safe!
