Departments in UHK


The Histopathology laboratory at UHK refers samples to the Bon Secours Hospital, Tralee and to Cork University Hospital for analysis and reporting. Post-vasectomy semen analysis is available through an external provider: all samples should be forwarded to the Histology Department at UHK for despatch on to the external provider.

Histological examination is the appropriate request for all specimens requiring general histopathological examination. Specimens should be submitted intact. Specimens should not be dissected in theatre as this may prevent proper gross examination in the laboratory and may interfere with the selection of appropriate tissue sections for microscopy. Histology specimens for routine examination must be received in formalin.
