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