Electron Microscopy Laboratory

The Electron Microscopy Laboratory is located in the UW Medical Center, room BB-222. We are normally staffed from 8:30am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday. Our main service is providing electron microscopy micrographs for patient diagnosis. We routinely process biopsies/specimens into plastic medium, cut one micron sections of the specimen and select samples of these sections for thin sectioning. We take approximately twelve micrographs per case. Turnaround time from submission is a maximum of four working days. We are avaliable for consultation for all EM procedures.
