RE: [Histonet] Techs on Renal Biopsies

From:"Sebree Linda A."

Hi Vicki,

We have a renal lab staffed by a histologist that only does this type of work.  She uses  hisotechs from the surgical pathology lab as back-ups when she's busy or absent.  They (surg. path. techs) train extensively with the renal histotech to be able to function as back-ups.

I was just wondering how you all handle renal biopsy cases. Do your
histotechs go on the biopsies to identify glomeruli, adequacy of
tissue,and divide tissue for routine histology, immunofluorescence and
electron microscopy studies, etc. or, if not the techs, who handles that
in your institution?
Thanks in advance for your help,
