With histological diagnostics, we examine your patient's tissue (biopsy, excision or surgical preparation).
- We have in-house specialists for every area of expertise
- our fully automated tissue processor enables rapid diagnostics (within hours)
- depending on the fixation time, lead time ranges from a few hours to 3 working days
In our laboratory, we process (fixed) tissue into very thin slices, stick them on slides and apply HE (haematoxylin-eosin) staining. Sometimes additional (immuno-)histochemical staining is also needed. After staining, the pathologist evaluates the slides under the light microscope and makes a diagnosis.
Especially for neuropathological or nephropathological questions, we offer electron microscopy. This is not covered by our ISO 15189-accredited quality management system.
