About Us

CAPL Ltd. was established in 1993. Following the association with Abbey Veterinary Services and Abbey Clinical Pathology Ltd. in 2012, the service, particularly in microbiology and allergy/immunotherapy,  expanded now provides diagnostic laboratory services to veterinary surgeons not only in the local area but nationally and internationally. In 2014 the laboratory relocated to new, larger premises, where, together with a state of the art improved Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), Modulab, we are able to meet the expanding workload and range of comprehensive testing now offered to our clients.

Since April 2015, CAPL Ltd. and Abbey Veterinary Services (AVS) have become part of NationWide Laboratories (NWL) http://www.thehormonelab.com/

NationWide Labs is a trading business of National Veterinary Services Ltd.

NWL, CAPL and AVS have been providing laboratory services to veterinary practices for many years, and have established a strong reputation for the quality of the service they provide, the accuracy of their results, the personalised service and attention given to our clients and those animals in their care. We are confident that the new arrangement will continue to emphasise these positive aspects, and, importantly, will not lead to an impersonal approach.

The CAPL laboratory will remain under the day-to-day management of Stephen Steen whom you already know. The friendly, helpful and skilled team, with whom you have built a professional relationship over many years, will continue to provide help and support for your practice.
In addition to the expertise you were already able to access there will be added veterinary support from the wider team across the NWL businesses. This brings for all the businesses access to a greater range of in-house laboratory investigations, with quicker turn-around times and cost-effective pricing.

 

We also provide courier collection service to our clients within the vicinity of CAPL – if you are new to us then please contact us to see if you are eligible.
