Questions about synovium and synovial fluid are welcome. If indicated we can do or arrange electron microscopy, elemental analysis or PCR.

Sending us specimens

Special techniques may be needed to answer some questions about synovium. Ideally, discuss the question to be asked before obtaining the specimen so proper collection and processing can be planned.
