Accuracy and State-of-the-art Instrumentation
In 1965, with three employees and a vision of providing exceptional service to the medical community, Dr. Jack T. Peterson opened the doors of Peterson Clinical Laboratory in Manhattan, Kansas.


Today, as Peterson Laboratory Services, P.A., that founding philosophy remains. PLS is a full-service cytology and surgical testroundcorn.jpgpathology laboratory with four Board Certified pathologists. We offer you a highly trained and experienced team of technologists, technicians, billing specialists and client service representatives.


 Accuracy - Because there is no room for error in specimen testing!  Every surgical case is reviewed by two board certified pathologists. In effect, you are offering your patients a free pathology consultation on every case. 

Timely Results - Even with 100% quality assurance review, you still receive 24-hour turnaround on routine specimens. You’ll also have two pathologists familiar with your case for consultation. Does your current lab offer you this level of service?


Exceptional - With most testing done in house, we can ensure quick turnaround times. This morning’s surgical specimen report on your desk – often with pictures – this afternoon.
