Two types of renal biopsy can be sent for histopathology investigation: native biopsies and transplant biopsies. In order for comprehensive investigations to be carried out these biopsies must be received in saline.
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.
