Pathology Clinical Service Center
The mission of the Pathology Clinical Service Center (PCSC) is to promote and facilitate translational research by providing comprehensive blood and tissue-based services
to investigators. Among these services are those that traditionally are only provided by Anatomic and Clinical Pathologists in the clinical setting. The Anatomic
Division (PCSC-AP) specializes in the analysis of human bio-samples and offers histology, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, in situ hybridization, tissue
microarray construction, molecular analysis, digital imaging, multispectral image analysis and assay development. The Transfusion Medicine & Therapeutic Pathology Division
(PSCS-TM&TP) encompasses the Apheresis and Infusion Clinic, the Stem Cell Lab, and the Blood Bank, and the Penn Medicine Blood Donation Center. The PCSC-TM&TP operates in
compliance with FDA regulations, is accredited by the AABB and FACT, and specializes in the collection, processing, and re-infusion of cellular products, and offering mononuclear
cell, whole blood, and plasma collections, elutriation, and infusion of intravenous medications under medical supervision. The Clinical Pathology Division (PCSC-CP) specializes
in the analysis of blood and serum samples, including chemistry, microbiology, coagulation, hematology, immunology, and molecular pathology. In addition, PCSC can collect, store,
analyze, and annotate research samples for IRB-approved projects.
