Electron Microscopy service

Electron microscopy looks at the ultrastructural composition of a specimen.

Electron microscopy is routinely carried out on both native renal biopsies and longstanding renal transplant biopsies. In all other instances electron microscopy will be undertaken at the request of the Consultant Histopathologist.

If the user would specifically like to request electron microscopy on a specimen, the appropriate Consultant Histopathologist must be contacted prior to biopsy.

For any other information please contact the Lead Biomedical Scientist for Electron Microscopy Lee Crompton on 0161 701 0975 or 0161 276 8806.
