Histopathology Specimens

Specimens for histopathology examinations may be dropped off to the Dental School for examination and report.

They should be placed in properly sealed container in 10% formal saline at 10X the volume of the specimen. The container must be labelled with the patient's and clinician's names, the date that the specimen was taken, and the type of specimen.

A completed oral pathology and services request form must accompany the specimen. You may download a copy here.

Reports are usually completed in five working days, and may be faxed if urgent.
