Bone Marrow

Bone Marrow Services provides technical assistance with the collection, preparation, and staining of samples of bone marrow aspirates, biopsies, and related smears.

The services are available Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm. Urgent work outside of these times must be cleared by the Laboratory Medicine resident on call. The Laboratory Medicine resident will ascertain the urgency of the request.

If the bone marrow technologist is required to assist at bone marrow collection in OHSU and DCH Hospitals and Clinics, the bone marrow technologist must be called in advance to schedule time for this procedure.  Please call 503 494-7952.

For special requests or questions concerning sample handling, collection, turnaround time, or specific assay information, call 503 494-7952.
