Electron Microscopy

The Electron Microscopy Laboratory is located in the Multnomah Pavilion, Suite 410. We are normally staffed from 7:30am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday. Our main service is providing transmission 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 available for consultation for EM procedures at 503 494-8402.

General specimen information and instructions for handling can be found in the Test Directory.
