Histopathology 

We provide routine histopathological diagnoses using both standard techniques and advanced diagnostics including immunocytochemistry, fluoresent in-situ hybridisation (FISH), and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Electron Microscopy can be arranged at the Royal Free site.

Many of our consultant histopathologists are acknowledged authorities in their fields, some on an international level.

 
Conditions treated

We provide histopathological reports which will indicate a treatment regime to the responsible clinician but we do not actually treat patients. We differentiate between malignancy and non-malignancy and characterise the malignant tumours to allow the most appropriate therapy to be selected.

Service performance

We have a target turnaround time of 95 per cent of cases reported within seven days, and 50 per cent of cases within three days, to be achieved by October 2010. Currently we are achieving 62 per cent within seven days, 70 per cent within eight days and 19 per cent within three days.
