In addition, the experienced Histology team can provide advice, training and research assistance. Staff are well known for their ability to produce high quality, accurate results in an efficient, timely manner.

MHP Nodes

In addition to the central MU Clayton Histology site, two nodes of MHP have been established to meet the needs of local researchers and the community.

The nodes operate as spokes of the established central Hub in Clayton enabled with close working relationships, easy transportation between the sites, as well as increased flexibility where staff participate in inter-Laboratory training across all sites. Uniformity and consistency in work practices across the nodes have been well established and largely guided by ISO-9001 certification standards of which MHP has practiced since 2014 and has implemented at both nodes.

MHP-AMREP is located at the Alfred Hospital, Prahran and provides on-site Professional services and access to DIY equipment.

MHP-MHTP is located at Monash Medical Hospital in the Monash Health Research Precinct. This node offers a combination of Professional Services and DIY within the same convenient location.
