Specimen packaging and transport

It is requested that samples are not sent ad hoc without notifying the Cellular Pathology Electron Microscopy Lead BMS or other, previously agreed, members of MFT electron microscopy staff (see section 10).

It is also requested that no more than approximately 5 samples are sent in any single batch. Excessive batching of samples is discouraged as this can cause demanding spikes in workload, particularly if priority samples are included. Where samples arrive in batches of 6 or more, the turnaround time cannot be guaranteed for all samples within it.

All packages should be addressed to:


Electron Microscopy
1st Floor
Clinical Sciences Building 1
Manchester Royal Infirmary
Oxford Road
M13 9WL
