Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I know we have some who post on here, I would like to ask a question that I think is related to your trade. Do you "do" histopathology? Preparation of samples etc? If not, do we have a CEG that does this or is it all outsourced?Many thanks
     
  2. Yes it is related to our trade but no we do not specialise in Histo. A few have worked in Histo when we had Haslar but now it is dealt with by the NHS.
     
  3. This threads a bit old, but it relates to Biomedical Scientists so what the hell,
    Is there any role that relates to what a Biomedical Engineer does in the armed forces? As in involved in the research and fitting of prosthetic limbs etc, I believe you generally do a 3 year Bsc in Mech. Engineering then a 1 year Masters? in Bioengineering at Uni, but I can't find anything related to it to do with the military itself. It appears that most of the Biomedicine related jobs are pathological, and I was wondering if all that sort of work is outsourced
     
  4. Nothing to do with our trade whatsoever sorry.
     
  5. Thanks for clearing that up
