Shipping & Handling of Anatomic Pathology Samples
Include a completed submission form with billing information, patient information, sample source(s), pertinent history and/or provisional diagnosis, and desired test(s).
Tissue samples should be completely submerged in 10% formalin.
Tissues should be placed in a sufficiently large container so that the sample is not cramped or folded.
Large pieces of tissue may be sectioned to ensure adequate formalin-fixing.
Very small pieces of tissue should be placed in a plastic tissue cassette or wrapped in a small piece of gauze.
