The unprocessed kidney biopsies performed in your center can be sent (for specifics see above) to the EURenalPath center, where they will be processed for light microscopy (LM) and immunofluorescence (IF). Depending on your question and any specific requirements also electron microscopy (EM) will be performed.
EURenalPath also offers the option of consultation. For this, you can send to us the elsewhere already processed material, i.e. paraffin blocks, LM and IF slides (or IF pictures), EM images (or for EM fixed tissue).
In addition to regular diagnostics, you can also benefit of extra services at EURenalPath. On request, you can get digital images representative of the biopsy.
