Excalibur Pathology is owned and operated
by Paula Pierce, HTL(ASCP)HT.

Paula is a graduate of the  first class  of the
Histotechnology Technician Program at Rose State
College in Midwest City, Oklahoma. After
graduating and obtaining her HT registry in 1979,
she began working at the Eye Pathology
Laboratory  in Oklahoma City. As the sole
technician, she learned the art and science of
preparing whole eye diagnostic slides from human
clinical and animal research ophthalmic tissue
specimens.

The early 80's saw the introduction of
immunohistochemistry stains being used to assist
in the diagnosis of diseases in the clinical setting
and Paula performed her first immuno on an
unpigmented intraocular tumor  which stained
positive for prostate specific antigen and thus was
a metastasis of the patient's prostate cancer.

While raising her family and continuing her
education, Paula  began working at Integris Baptist
Medical  Center in Oklahoma City in 1992 as
assistant special stains technician. A facility
processing 25,000 cases per year and a leader in
heart and liver transplantation, Baptist held a
wealth of information to learn. She obtained her
Bachelor's degree in Natural Science and
Mathematics from Thomas Edison State College,
the HTL registry, and was promoted to lead
technician.

In 1998, she returned to the  Eye Pathology
Laboratory as the pathology laboratory manager.

Now, Paula offers her expertise in processing your
tissue specimens at Excalibur Pathology.
