Specimen containers and specimen transport


I'm looking specifically for screw top large containers that are prelabeled with formalin warning labels that will not leak or break if accidentally dropped. Vendors, PLEASE....feel free to contact me either via email or at work.

Second thing, I'm interested in how the smaller labs transport specimens from the operating room to the laboratory. Do the specimens get sent down fresh and formalin is added in the lab or is there formalin kept in the OR suite itself? What do you use for transport? A cart, soft sided cooler, etc.....? Thanks in advance for the information.
