As of Monday, March 16, the University of Colorado has closed most academic buildings on the Anschutz Medical Campus which has changed our specimen delivery process.
The Neuromuscular Pathology Lab is still accepting specimens for analysis.
When sending a muscle or nerve biopsy specimen to the Neuromuscular Pathology Lab, please call ahead to coordinate delivery. Please deliver specimens as soon as possible following the biopsy to:
University of Colorado Hospital - Anschutz Inpatient Pavilion
Surgical Pathology - Gross Room Drop-off

We are available to recieve specimens between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM Monday thru Friday. Our lab operates on the University of Colorado Anschutz holiday schedule. PLEASE CALL AHEAD OR CHECK THE WEBSITE FOR AVAILABILITY DURING THE HOLIDAYS.
If you are delivering a biopsy after 4:30 PM OR on a day when our office is closed, please deliver to UCHealth Pathology in the Anschutz Inpatient Pavilion. Take elevator D to the 3rd floor, turn right out of the elevators, and continue down the hallway to window 3.124 "Gross Room drop-off." UCHealth Pathology will contact our office for pick up.
