Oral and maxillofacial specimens

UCSF Dermatopathology and Oral Pathology welcomes the opportunity to serve you and your patients with high quality, timely and state of the art diagnostic services for oral and maxillofacial pathology specimens.

Immunofluorescence testing

We perform direct immunofluorescence studies on specimens where adjuvant testing is needed to establish the diagnosis of a mucocutaneous disorder such as pemphigus, pemphigoid or lichen planus. Testing requires transport to us in a non-formalin preservative called Michel’s medium. We provide the preservative and forms, order them online by clicking here.
