Our services

Laboratories and services

Our services include morphologic (macroscopic, histological, cytological, electron microscopic), histochemical, immune-histochemical, biochemical and molecular-biological examinations of all organs. There are several laboratories for histological and cytological as well as for special investigations. In the department is a patient ambulatory for fine needle puncture. The optinal asservation of the services immediate processing and evaluation ensure highest quality.
