The Electron Microscopy Laboratory at Saint Louis University School of Medicine provides diagnostic electron microscopy (EM) services for a wide range of surgical specimens as either stand-alone electron microscopic analysis or in conjunction with histological and immunohistochemical services provided by the Histopathology Laboratory.
Diagnostic ultrastructural analysis is available for renal, muscle, tumor, ciliary, heart, liver, nerve, and buffy coat and muscle specimens. Specimens may be submitted for technical preparation and interpretation provided by pathologists in the department of pathology or for technical preparation only, with slides and micrographs returned to the referring pathologist for interpretation.
