Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)

The Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) Scheme Participants are asked to submit 2 archival stained preparations, from 2 distinct TEM analysed biopsies

No. of assessment runs:
6 distributions over a 12 month period

Digital Images assessed:
Selected / In-house Material (all runs)

Diagnostic transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is carried out in a number of specialist centres and departments in the UK and overseas. Renal pathology, is by far the largest user of diagnostic electron microscopy services with many centres routinely examining all native renal biopsies by electron microscopy. In other areas, such as muscle and nerve pathology, current TEM is also regarded as an important if not essential diagnostic tool.

Unlike other UK NEQAS CPT schemes TEM will utilise digital image submission to our website for assessment. Where a participant is unable to submit digital images, micrographs will be accepted.
