The Office of Toxicology (Tox Path) supports the Toxicity Evaluation Division (TEV), the Health Effects Division (HEF), and other Department of Defense customers​

Tox Path provides necropsy and histology (including special stains, imagery, and histopathologic assessment) in compliance with Good Laboratory Practices. It has a robust surge capacity to ensure rapid response to mission tasks.

The office contributes all the post-mortem gross and microscopic assessment data and (when desired) clinical pathology data from in vivo toxicology studies to help the TEV and HEF support the Army's Preventive Medicine Program and Soldier readiness objectives.
