Our Services

Renal Pathology

Quality interpretation of over 700 renal biopsy specimens is performed annually by the renal pathology staff, including Drs. Crary, Linzie, and Cameron. Consultations by telephone are available. Formal reports can be mailed or faxed to physicians and medical records department.

Electron microscopy services are routinely coordinated with light and immuno-fluorescence microscopy which are handled through the Histopathology Laboratory. To request a renal kit or to obtain additional information regarding handling and specimen requirements, please call 612-873-3079, Monday through Friday, 6:00 am to 4:30 pm.

Neuromuscular Pathology

The Neuromuscular Pathology laboratory has been providing services for over 40 years by experienced technical and professional staff. All specimens are evaluated by a board-certified neuromuscular pathologist to determine the most appropriate tests for each patient, and a final clinical report is issued with the pathologists’ interpretation of the patient’s neuromuscular disease.

Detailed instructions for handling muscle and nerve tissue samples as well as the proper fixatives can be requested by calling 612-873-2175. Biopsies should be performed by noon, Monday - Friday to ensure that they are received at the laboratory during normal business hours. Please contact the lab to notify our staff of all incoming biopsies.
