CTA Lab Promises
Stains
CTA Lab’s clients have the option of self-diagnosing their cases through our slide preparation including our standard Hematoxylin and Eosin (H&E) stain or a wide variety of special staining. The more popular option is to have skilled and board-certified dermatopathologists Dr. Curtis T. Thompson or Dr. Jessica Spies diagnose the case and issue a report with their findings. Having a board-certified dermatopathologist diagnose your case gives you the ease of mind that you and your patient will receive a quick, detailed and accurate diagnosis.

Through either option of slide preparation or dermatopathologist consultation, our priority and mission is to provide accurate, thorough and timely dermatopathology service. We accept specimens from all states nationwide and look forward to working with you.
