HSRL’s New Archiving Facility Offers More Than 1 Million Cubic Feet of Storage


Leading Histopathology Service Provider Expands Its Specimen Storage Capacity

HSRL-archiving-facility.jpgMount Jackson, VA — April 27, 2016 — Histo-Scientific Research Laboratories (HSRL), a leading provider of histology, pathology, and archiving services, today announced the opening of its new 1 million cubic foot storage specimen facility. The facility, located about an hour west of Washington, allows HSRL to safely store over 1,000,000 cubic feet of ambient materials and over 5,000 cubic feet of refrigerated and frozen specimens.

“With a push by several pharmaceutical companies to move all of their research materials offsite, it was imperative that more space be placed online,” says Ed Galati, HSRL’s Vice President of Archiving Operations. “Now, we can handle just about any size client because of our new building’s capacity,” added Ed. Among the features of the storage specimen facility:

  • More than 1 million cubic feet of ambient storage
  • Ultra-low storage capabilities
  • GLP compliant facility
  • Backup generators
  • FM-200 fire suppression
