Renal Biopsies

Two types of renal biopsy can be sent for histopathology investigation: diagnostic/native biopsies and transplant biopsies.  In order for comprehensive investigations to be carried out, native biopsies should be sent in saline and transplant biopsies should be sent in neutral buffered formalin.

Renal biopsies must be pre-booked by contacting the histopathology laboratory ext. 2930.

If you require a result on the same day, the biopsy must be received within the laboratory by 12pm.

If you require a result on the following day, the biopsy must be received within the laboratory by 4pm.
